      Hello Mike, something weird is happening, I must be doing something wrong or not understanding something.
      We have capo on 2 and the 5th string tuned to A. Now in measure 15 you fret the 5th string on the 9th fret. I can also see you are doing that in the video. Yet the only way to make that sound good (and the same as in the video) is if I fret the 5th at the 7th fret using my thumb, so that it sounds the same as the 1st string on the 9th fret.
      I have double checked my 5th string is tuned to A and the rest of the song sounds right. What is happening?! hahaha

        It’s hard to say without seeing/hearing you play.

        It could be an issue with your banjo. Is a railroad spike blocking you from fretting that note?

        Can you email me a video of you playing that part so I can take a look?

        – Mike

        I’ve sent you an email with a google photos link to the video at [email protected]. Hope we can solve the mystery đŸ˜€
