For enthusiasts of early banjo
Good point, Dan'l. Native Heritage Pitch. Yes. I posted this so clawhammer players could see how easy it is to get the minstrel tuning. And many clawhammer players would call the minstrel tuning the Pete Seeger tuning - pitched differently.
Terry this is a terrific video showing the relative steps of different common tunings! I think most players would understand that the keys would be lower than normal on the other tunings if starting from minstrel tuning this way. It's just cool to see the differences. I often grab a banjo off the wall and just want to give tweak here or there to play in another tuning, so this makes a great blueprint for doing that. Having more practice in doing just what you are doing in this video will bring me a greater overall understanding to retuning back and forth.
Did you notice that only the 2nd and 4th strings are retuned?
Much as in when retuning for clawhammer between G/Gmodal/C, or A/Amodal/D.
