Watch the Open G Tuning online guitar lesson by Ben Wright from Bluegrass Banjo for Guitar Players

Here we discuss the standard G tuning of a banjo. We also talk about the fifth string peg and how it's probably a good idea to buy a geared tuner if you're playing an old banjo. Old style tension tuners are extremely difficult to tune and a good cam tuner is pretty cheap and easy to install. Most music stores will do it for about $20.
