Jeff Menzies #253 tackhead tuned dGDGA.
I don't hear this one played as often as I would expect. Could this be because of the non-standard tuning?

So where did you find this notation or tab that indicates this tuning, Scott?

Hmm?

Well.., good question Lisa?  Honestly I really don't remember the source, it just kind of worked out that way I guess.  That said, I'm reasonably confident that I found it somewhere online because you know my weakness with keys, notation, and "tunnings".  Banjo Hangout maybe?  Sorry I can't be more precise. 

Missed you at APX this year and hope all is well with you.

All the best!

Scot - give this one a try from the Buckley '68 (high bass):    http://minstrelbanjo.ning.com/video/jubilee-1

(Or low bass if you wish, the 4th string 2nd fret is easy to fret...)

Many thanks Paul.  I'll take your advice.
