    Thank you for the informantion as I have clocked up 260 on my orginal banjo as a new player and thought strings lasted until the broke. May explain why D7 sounds horrable and my playing sounds worse so has saved me from throwing the towel in regards to continue to learn.

    @Bruce Pritchard, thanks for sharing about Pat Enright and the need for safety glasses. I am always a little leery when changing strings and wearing safety glasses would have saved Pat’s eye.

    Thanks to Chad and Deering for this very informative video, especially with regards to intonation. Usually, players have no idea why they sound out of tune up the neck nor how to perform such an easy task that makes such a huge difference in the overall sound of the instrument!
