Thread Name: Pete Seeger's banjo -- RETURNED
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's banjo -- RETURNED
The point about heavyweight strings is that they can be tuned lower, just like the long-neck. Then, just like the long-neck banjo, you normally operate capo'd to standard tuning except when you need to sing lower. My guess is that P.S. didn't like heavyweight strings any better than I did.
