That fits my 6 string banjo.

I'm sure it would sound great on it!

The base notes fit the extra bass string set up.  It is going to take me a while to do it justice though, so don't hold your breath for a video soon.  Cheers

Thanks. At a glance, looks more interesting than Howe's or the Charlie Converse.

Try the "Sebastopol". I'd love to know what it sounds like

Wow....open D tuning. Makes the read of it a new challenge. Ok....let's see what it is. Thanks Paul.

It bears similarities to the Fandangos in the banjo canon.
