GUEST,Sandy Andina Chord Req: Skewball (Steeleye Span) banjo tab (3) Chord Req: Skewball (Steeleye Span) banjo tab 07 Mar 06


Well, it's happened--hit the ol' double nickel and the brain cells are beginning to go supernova on me. 24 years ago I played a bit of frailing banjo and learned this cool mt. modal minor tuning. Immediately figured out "Chatzkele" (Marais & Miranda version) and then Steeleye Span's version of "Skewball," which sounded a lot flashier than it really was--a real crowd-pleaser. Trouble is, I soon got sidetracked to bass guitar and haven't picked up the banjo in years. My singing partner Susan plays 6-string banjo, but I'd love to bring the fiver back into the act (especially when we add Kate Early, who sings lead on the trad songs). Anyone know what the strings in that particular tuning were and which chords? (In a pinch, I could figure out the chords again if I had the tuning).
