Open G banjo playing with dulcimer

Thursday, June 4, 2015

Hi all,

I am going camping this weekend with a group of friends who have cobbled together some homemade instruments, pretty much a jug band if you will. One of my friends is a musician and he plays a wash tub bass. Last year I played a stick dulcimer and there was an actual mountain dulcimer in the group so things were okay. He told us last year to just strum along with the beat and everything will be fine. My wife commented that it sounded pretty good.

Earlier this year I picked up a banjo and have been learning it tuned to open G. So now if I want to play with that dulcimer, how should I be tuned to make things sound okay? My skill level is very basic but I'm thinking that by playing the basic rolls I know and strumming at times things might work out. Is there an easy way for tuning my banjo to fit in with the dulcimer?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I was born in a warm canal. I have rudimentary woodworking skills and no musical talent except for playing my stereo hi-fi, but I have takin' a liking to old timey music and I desire to learn the banjo claw hammer style. I will be skullking around these web pages trying to learn as much as I can from all you newbies, wannabies and experienced players and builders. Let the journey begin!!
