Can anyone tell me what tuning Dayna is using for this song?
Chords tips also welcome.

Banks Of The Edisto
Dayna Kurtz

I’ve been lazy
I’ve been overfed
I’ve been thinking
too much with my head
I was dreaming
about the life you led
on the banks of the Edisto

on the banks of the Edisto
where the sweet gum and the cypress grows
I want to know what the cypress knows
on the banks of the edisto

Where’d you go
when you died my friend
do you see us
did your soul ascend
and I listened
for his answer then
on the banks of the Edisto

heaven’s here where the barn owl cries
where the smile meets my sweetheart’s eyes
I’ll be right here taming dragonflies
only heaven I need to know

on the banks of the Edisto
where the sweet gum
and the cypress grows
I want to know what the cypress knows
on the banks of the Edisto

I’ve been lazy
I’ve been overfed
I’ve been thinking too much with my head
I’ve been dreaming
about the life you led
on the banks of the Edisto

Hi Les,
Yes, this the song. Thanks for the link.
Her banjo doesn't sound like it is in standard tuning though.
Can identify the chords quite easily, but need to know the precise tuning.
Anne

On that clip I get F minor tuning (from 5th to 1st):
c C F A-flat C.
The 5th and 1st strings are tuned to the same C.

Think of it as a Gm tuning knocked down a whole tone to suit her voice.

Another suggestion from a banjo player was the following:

"it sounds like it's tuned like this from the high/top string down" :
G
D
G
C
D
