Joe Richman Tune Req: Fretless banjo (23) RE: Tune Req: Fretless banjo 11 Nov 06

PLEASE!!! fretless players: do not injure yourself by kicking yourself,etc. Consider yourselves an endangered species. Post questions on the 'Cat when you hit a roadblock. I'm just an amateur, myself.

I have a neighbor who is a professional musician. He has never played a fretted instrument in his life, but when he was young he learned to play an upright Bass in a jazz combo. Since he is primarily a keyboard and woodwind man, he hadn't done that since the 70s. He played my fretless banjo after 30 seconds of noodling to figure out the tuning. (He played it like a bullfiddle of course!) So the instrument really isn't that hard to figure out. Just try things and play around with it and have a lot of fun!
