In guitar we do "1, flatted 3rd, and 5"..... but I don't know anything about the banjo, except that it's too heavy for my size :laugh:

Flattening the III and V is actually a dimished chord. Minor chords only flatten the third.

On the banjo

For the bar form: lower the 2nd string down 1 fret (now you have sort of a triangle on the 1 2 3 strings.

For what is usually called position 1 or the g chord the 3rd string is lowered 1 fret (from 3 tp b3)

For the 2nd position or many call it the D form, the 1 and 4 strings are lowered 1 fret (from 3 to b3)

You can obviously also make thies partical chords by leaving one of the double notes out. For me sometimes the partial chord works out better.

Brilind's positioning instructions are real helpful, fretmentor had just begun a music theory lesson with me regarding minor chords. It's a hard process for me, but it interesting to see where the minor chords come from and then it's not so hard to apply Brian's help on positioning.
