Brian Brewer: Modified Gold Tone

Brian Brewer demonstrates an interesting modification he had done to his Gold Tone banjitar. This is a slick idea where he uses railroad spikes (used for capoing the fifth string on a five-string mandolin) and he changes his top string to an unwound high E. This allows him to set a root/tonic note on the top for the key. This gives him high drone sound of a five-string, but he can easily change to different keys. Very innovative--and he is a great player!

6-String Banjo Lesson - Brad Davis

 This is a useful lesson from Brad Davis. I love the sound of his Deering banjitar! Maybe someday Deering will want to sponsor me or want me as an endorser! (I can always dream!)
