What's the best way to see if your banjo has it's optimal setup? Put it in the key of B and play "Poor Ellen Smith" as close as you can to the way Jim Mills recorded it! If your banjo is right, it won't lay down on you when you dig in. After a setup from John Boulding, this banjo is firing on all cylinders. Let me know what you think.

You can listen to Jim's original recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtLhq3li4Bw
