A Mnemonic for Open G tuning (gDGBD) is "Gosh Darn, Great Banjo Day."

Posted by Boadicea on Monday, March 19, 2018

"Gosh Darn! Great Banjo Day!" Absolutely! It really is that type of day!

Yes so I have a lesson at 12pm, so I am looking forward to that! So I have been jamming. My playing is improving. I am slightly more present with my banjo playing, and with my banjo, so my playing has gone to a new level for me. It is great to make a bit of (very modest) progress! I have been going through my pieces this morning, and that has been good. I went over to have some minor surgery on my shoulder but they put it off for another 6 weeks. If it flares up I am to come over immediately and they will do it on the same day. So six weeks will be good because it is right on my shoulder blade and as I was worried how it will effect my noodling, jamming, playing and practising of my banjo, I am really relieved so I can have a reprieve before the minor surgery. 

Gosh Darn! Great Banjo Day! :)

And I thought it was, " Goats don't go boating drunk." I have been wondering if there are nice ones for other tunings.

If you know the little ditty for Ukulele tuning, "My Dog Has Fleas" (which isn't a mnemonic, because the words don't tell you what the notes are), then you might like this mnemonic for banjo open G tuning: Go Downtown, Get Better Dog.
