Thanks. Tried to play through it. First time with a drop D tuning. Measure 28 is interesting. I like to see how he thinks about the banjo.

I am also having fun with these John Hartford songs, if you notice, he is very comfortable playing slowly as well as extremely fast, sometimes it's nice to slow it down a bit. As far as alternate tunings goes, this Low D is pretty easy to play, it's the same intervals as open G just a lot lower...sounds cool for a while, but I am happy to have figured out that you can change the pitch of the song very easily with a free slow down program called Audacity. Check it out if you get sick of retuning your banjo only to pick along with John Hartford songs. You get the same tempo without having to retune your banjo...and then having to tune it back.

Please, could you tell me what "Low Open D" tuning is? And could you give me the string layout? I'm not sure by looking at your beautiful tab which strings are tuned to what. It says, Low Open D tuning. I want to play the melody tab in D. Many, many thanks! Marcia
