I've included beginner banjo instruction on the notes to tune a banjo too. I listed several of the most common ways to tune a banjo depending on what type of banjo it is. I included 5-string banjo in standard bluegrass G tuning as well as C and D tuning, 4-string tenor and plectrum tunings, old time banjo tuning like double C and G modal and the low open E Banjo tuning like John Hartford used.
