tuning your canjo

A Tune-a-Fish Special canjo can be tuned in many combinations but the arrangement in the image above, F C, is a good place to start. It will make the two strings sound good together as you touch both with the glass slide and move up and down the neck. The small letter on each string is the note played by that open string, and the arrows point to the knob used to tune the named string. If you are getting comfortable with the canjo and want to try other tunings have a go at G C or G# C.
