Thanks for friending me...I'm back safe in the high grounds of the Black Country Delta now, I'll be in Upton again for the Blues at the weekend...rain or shine so I if your going I'll see you there?..keep your eye on that Mississippi Severn...with the new flood barriers in place it won't affect the town so the festival is safe, but they have had to move the camping 2 fields up from the usual site.
Fortunately, through this modern technology it is possible to work together to a point. I have Skype but I haven't really got around to making lessons via this venue fully up and running. I also plan to begin a series of lessons about theory and practice. This will cover a clear apporach that I feel will make playing any string instrument regardless of number of strings or tuning more understandable. Like anything in life, you really need a good mental picture before you try to physically do something. Enjoy your practice, Keni Lee
Thank you Paul. Using Open tunings, a 513 (tones from the major scale) triad (basic 3 note chord) can be used to make moveable chords. On 3 strings CBG I use ADF# Tuning. This is 513 in key of D. On 4 string I use DGBD (Open G Tuning). This is 5135 in the key of G. On a 5 string banjo the triad is here gDGBD / 15135. On a 6 string the tuning in Open D is DADF#AD / 151351 and Open G DGDGBD 515135. Basically, if you can understand the string relationships your knowledge is simply transfered onto another instrument. Enjoy, Keni Lee
