More fishing string experiments .... instead of a low tuning this time , I went the other way ....I put thinner fishing line on my short scale banjo ...its more like a banjolin now .... I thought it would drive me crazy being that high-pitched but its actually pretty cool ....hey, I can play bluegrass now , I can do the mandolin-up-chuck vamp with this baby .... I deliberately went up high on the neck so you could get the full dog-whistle effect ...just like when fiddlers move into those positions - LOL Im backing myself up with fiddle on this .... what do you think of the high banjolin pitch ?

I think that Sally Goodin has been crying out for somebody to take a teeny little banjo, put some fishing line it, and knock themselves out. Sounds just like Sally Goodin should. Got that neat "buck and wing" kind of feel to it.

I'm not sure why somebody rated this a "3". I could listen to this all day; this is what oldtime is all about! Not all old time is chukka chukka clawhammer!!
