Banjo Bill: Alternative Tuning for Banjitar


Banjo Bill shares a brief account of his musical origins and how he got started playing on banjitar. He has an interesting idea for tuning to get a more banjo-like sound on the six-string banjo that involves using different string gauges. I tried this out myself and made a video on it with the string gauges that I found worked best for me, but I got the idea from Banjo Bill. Nowadays I have settled on Nashville tuning for one of my banjitars instead of Bill's, but if you are looking to try his idea out, you'll find it works great.
