Do you have any advice in playing banjo in every key without using a capo, and in a three finger style?

draw out a copy of the circle of fifths. [google it]. if you play all of your vocabulary in every key without stopping, retuning, or using a capo, you will invent your own banjo style. play your first idea in C. then move it up a fourth to F. then Bb and so on. until you get right back where you started. take your whole vocabulary and go through this process. it will take about ten years to really nail it. working say, three hours a day. but at the end you will have your own way of playing the banjo.
