    Re: Bass guitar stays quiet !!!

    :) Depends on how far back in banjo history one goes. The old gut-string predecessors of modern banjos aren't likely to be anywhere near as loud as modern steel-string banjos of the last 120+ years...

    Re: Tab Software

    I use MuseScore. They added tab-writing capability a few years ago. I didn't much like MuseScore at first, but either it's improved or I've gotten used to it. :whistling: Although I wasn't impressed...

    I'd say there's a possibility it's copyright trolls trying to make money off of *your* videos. :( Here's an older MandolinCafe thread about others' experiences with this sort of thing.
