Awesome new Tenor Guitar from Recording King.
The new Recording King Dirty 30's Series 7000 Tenor Guitar can be tuned like a 5-string banjo, to Chicago tuning, or normal tenor and Irish banjo tunings. They make a great alternative sound for banjo players accompanying themselves singing and for quiet practice. The tuning would be the same as a bluegrass banjo, you would just be missing the 5th string. Since banjo players don't normally fret the 5th string when making chords, all the chord shapes are the same. I think this would be a great way for banjo players to focus their attention of learning and using chords. Another big advantage is that the practice volume would be quieter or mellower sounding too. I like using a tenor guitar to accompany myself singing by strumming the chords instead of picking. Since I am primarily a bluegrass banjo player chording on the tenor guitar is a breeze for me and very comfortable. Ross Nickerson
