Discuss the Banjo lesson: In the Sweet By-and-By

There’s nothing sweeter than the words of this classic hymn, and I wanted to take this opportunity to teach another banjo tune in the key of C, but open G position! This one “swings” a bit, which makes it really fun to play.

Hi @BanjoBen in this lesson you discuss the use of swing eighth notes. But I see from the .tef file it’s set for Jazz Eighths. Just a quick query.

It’s been my experience that setting TablEdit’s MIDI options to Jazz produces a more “swing feel” than actually setting it to swing. I’ve opted for the Jazz setting on more than one occasion for that reason. I’m betting Ben’s doing the same.

I get the “swing” by messing with the syncopation setting here:

Hi @BanjoBen Yup I know how to change the setting. My query was about the actual setting in the Tef file I downloaded, it was set at Jazz Eights but in the lesson your discussing Swing Eighths. Just wondering what your indented setting should be Jazz or Swing ?

Honestly, I didn’t even know there was such a thing, haha.
