Jack Dwyer's 5-String Feature

I just stumbled on Jack’s YouTube video and thought I’d share it with y’all

Jack Dwyer’s 5-String Feature - Every Wednesday at 7pm


Very nice! And the next time someone starts that old “Speed vs Accuracy” debate, point them to this!
Now a technical question: Is his banjo simply tuned low or is it a naturally low-toned banjo? Or am I tone deaf?

“Banjo playing is 50% tuning and 50% playing out of tune!”


Hi Joseph, You got it, he is using different turnings. As I recall he starts out in D tuning and moves to C not sure what he did on the frailin banjo.

Check out this lesson with @AdamAsh


Thanks, I’ll do it!
