The Fairies (Banjo 1)

It's silly, really, but having a schedule worked out in advance and posting it here every Friday is, at the moment, making it really easy for me to stay focused on working on something I've wanted to do for a long time.

I'm looking forward to adding The Fairies to the mix this week. Onward!

"Thank you. I ended up having more on the string and changed the way I knot the string and so far, it's holding up. After these strings pop or needs changed, I will try those nylon strings."

What nylon strings do you recommend for banjo.

I'm been trying to string my old ragtime King banjo with nylgut red 11b strings and broke the 1st string, possibly from the knot I used. I was wondering what kind of nylon strings that can be tuned to the classic or ragtime tuning.See More
