Bury Me Beneath the Willow - Clawhammer

  • Clawhammer
  • Key   C
  • Capo   2
  • Tempo   90 bpm
  • Tuning   GCGCD

Listen on:

Tune to Double C on your banjo for this tune. If you play it at a jam you are very likely to hear it in the key of D. So after you tune to double C, put your capo on the second fret, and spike or capo your 5th string on the 7th fret. You can tune the 5th string up a whole step to A, just make sure you don't have old strings on when you do that. Old strings can easily break with that extra tension.
