Anyone know the tuning for Dan Gellert's version of Buckdancer's Choice? I know I won't be able to mimic his awesome funky style, but listening to this just makes me want to try to come up with something.

Here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdmZ62Xe8lg

He is playing in the key of G but has a low tuned banjo. I guess it is the so-called Briggs minstrel tuning dGF#A, which is equivalent to the drop C tuning gCGBD but with all strings five steps (frets) lower.
