Alex.S Beginning Banjo -- please help! (39) RE: Beginning Banjo -- please help! 09 Jul 04

Well Geoff, I haven't really decided! I was thinking more old-timey/folk music, a(pardon the lack of accent)-la Pete and Peggy Seeger, something I could sing along with.

I got the Pete Seeger and Trischka self-teaching guides from the library, but I haven't started either yet in earnest. Seeger recommends a different tuning than the one most websites recommended for beginners, deviating from the standard Gmaj by dropping the fifth string to C-- is this a good idea to pursue?

thanks for all the help!
