How to Capo the Fifth String

A question on capoing the fifth string

Hi Ross!

In your years of playing the banjo , do you find it usefull to have a 5th sting sliding capo bar? I not sure if I should have one mounted ,if it is not really needed.


My answer

Hi, you should have something to capo the fifth string, when you play with others you use the capo a lot.

However, I recommend using capo spikes not a sliding capo bar, very, very few people use those anymore, no pros do, the spikes work much better.

Do you have a banjo repair person near where you live?

Thanks again,
Ross Nickerson
