Hey Duke - Not only useful for me; it's a useful tip for everyone who plays with other people.

All credit to you for having the presence of mind to think of posting it in the first place!

Gotta weigh in for brada Thumbstruck. He wowed da guyz at the slack key workshop - Uncle Cyril, Uncle Dennis, Ron Kauila and Sonny Lim by playing in Tarpopatch for tunes in C, D & F. Da guy's amazin! We'll be on Oahu from 1/12 - 24. Stay Kailua. Molto jamz!!!

Sigh, no capo for fiddle. I can tranfer my fingering patterns to different strings to some extent, but Iʻve found it best to bring 2 fiddles, a "g" and an "f". "g" usually tunes standard GDAE, "f" one whole step slacked FCGD. So "f" fiddle in F,C "g" fiddle in G,D,A.

Put da "pila" back in "Kanikapila"

That's the problem with fiddle, Maliko - no frets.

I know of a pro singer-songwriter (Peter Case) who only plays in Open G no matter who he plays with -- although he does not call it taro patch. From him In learned to play a lot of songs in G tuning. It takes some effort but it is important to learn at least some chord shapes for several keys in taro patch. I don;t actually play it but can do a credible job of faking on five-string banjo because it is basically tuned to open G.

If you can do I-IV-V chords in several keys, you can cover most songs with rhythm strums or basic finger picking patterns. The licks and turnarounds might be a little more complicated.....

I think he told me this once and I've watched him so I'm pretty sure Glen Smith of Ho`okena plays everything they do tuned to Open G. No capo

A close relative to the lowered t-patch is the lowered Drop C (aka Drop Bb). I'm very fond of that'n <G>
