Thread Name: 5th String Capo
Subject: RE: 5th String Capo
Well, I'll find out tomorrow. The banjo man called and said it's on. I'll pick it up tomorrow and play it tomorrow/tomorrow night.

I don't frail. I use a four fingered roll style, with some brushing mixed in - real bastardized, I know, but it works for me. I don't think I'll have a problem with pulling too hard on the fifth string, since I'm pretty much down stroking with my nail. I don; fret the fifth string, hardly - I suppose I will have some adjusting to the bar being there ... we'll just have to see.

I'm anxious to try it out. Could be a lot of banjo played tomorrow night!
