More Advanced Earl - The Tuner Songs: So, we were talking about Earl Scruggs earlier. (Pun intended!) Some of the greatest tunes Earl gave us were the ones that feature the use of special D-tuners, sometimes called Scruggs tuners or Keith tuners. Your family and friends will be open-mouthed as they watch you de-tune your banjo and re-tune it right in the middle of the song! (Don’t tell them about the special tuners. Unless they paid for them!) We will show you step-by-step how to use these amazing tuning pegs.
If you don't have these special tuners (and you’re waiting for your birthday to roll around), we can still teach you how to play “Earl's Breakdown” and “Randy Lynn Rag” without the tuners. “Reuben,” which is in D tuning, does not require special tuners. We’ll show you how to retune the banjo for this one. Again, these classics are not just for Scruggs devotees. They are for anyone who is looking a greater adventure on the banjo.
Earl's Breakdown, Flint Hill Special, Reuben, and Randy Lynn Rag. (2 hours)
