Traditional Irish Music
I am new to this forum so I hope I am not going over an old subject.
I have been playing for about six months and I have a lovely Oakwood short scale tenor that I love playing. I have changed the strings a couple of times now and have always put the same gauges on as was supplied when the banjo was new. The thing I have noticed is the E, A and D are bright loud and have a nice ring to them but the G, even when the tuner says it is in tune has a rather lifeless thuddy quality to it. I know I could experiment with different gauges but I would appreciate a little advice on which way to go. At first none of the tunes I played used the G but now I have a couple in my collection that do go down onto that string.
