    Playing the 6 string banjo is similar in many ways to the guitar. They are both tuned the same. They both fret the same. But they still have subtle differences. Some of the differences noticed are the right hand techniques and the materials chosen to play. I have given you some of my favorite flatpicking and fingerpicking Old Time Fiddle Tunes, Celtic Fiddle Tunes, Songs and Ballads that are made up of right hand melody rolls or "Crosspicking" and Fingerstyle materials. All perfect for the 6 String Banjo and Guitar.
