I've been sliding my bridge '2 frets' up for a while now (for some tunes) with great success.
The trick is to have a rim big enough and a scale length short enough, and a neck tilt shallow enough to allow it.
My favorite banjo has a 27" scale, 12.5" rim and slightly less than a 2 degree neck tilt (the originals had 0 or maybe 1 degree I believe).
So........For instance, the song 'Glendy Burke'…
