Thread Name: Celtic music on 5 string banjo
Subject: RE: Celtic music on 5 string banjo
Dave, I have no idea what you mean by the tunings thing--it wouldn't bother me near as much if the 5 string player played melody no matter how loud---that is Celtic. Everybody plays melody.

What he does is play I,IV,V, and VII as loud as he can while banging his foot against the floor as hard as he can. He drones with chords on all 5 strings......and I can't kick him out because we are a "non profit club", not a band. My only choice is to quit and I don't want to do that because there is no one else to play with here. I love everybody else in the group--no problems at all, there.
