Soldier's Joy and Other Banjo Favorites (Formerly titled Playing In C, Volume 2): Okay, now that you can play in C—without a capo—let’s learn how to drop that fourth string down to a C note to add a bassy sound to your playing. (And give you more note choices.) “Home Sweet Home” and “Farewell Blues” both rely on this extra-low note.
Also, fiddle and mandolin players love the key of D. If you want to jam with them you’ll have to meet them on their own turf. “Soldier’s Joy” and “Liberty” are two of their favorites. Learn them in C (with that essential low note) then slap on the capo at the second fret to play in D. No longer will there be any reason to leave the jam session just because the fiddlers arrive!
Soldier's Joy, Liberty, Home Sweet Home, Farewell Blues, and Old Spinning Wheel. (2 hours)
