Hi Roberta - David Bragger gives an excellent lesson for Hobart Smith's Pateroller tune on YouTube. Here's the link: https://youtu.be/Ar3bkLux3-g
Thanks much, Paul: I think I should be able to follow this. How would G-Modal translate in early banjo tuning? G-Modal in clawhammer is gDGCD. Where would I go from the F#? To F?
Run the 2nd string up from F# to G, and run the 4th string up from G to A. (dADGA)
