Explore the many tunings that make the old time banjo sound
light, rich, deep, spooky, moody, and sweet. Discuss how to tell
by listening what tuning a piece is in, and consider a method of
thinking about tunings in order to discover tunings and invent
new ones. The class will learn one or two traditional tunes in
detail, and briefly go over many others, with the goal of

benefit most from this class, students should be able to frail
comfortably at medium speed, and able to play simple tunes
without stopping or looking at tablature.
