Do you use a capo often? If so what keys might you use it for and what retuning/ capo combinations might you use for certain keys? Thanks for sharing all this information

i almost never use one. i think working out music in other keys other than what the banjo is tuned into, helps you make up your own vocabulary. in some of the classic songs, if you want to get "that" sound, one must use the capo tuning combo that the original used. but if you want to make up your own music, play in Eb with no capo for a while and you'll see what i mean.
