Turn Turn Turn - Bryds
and a Poco tune - Pickin' up the Pieces
or an alternate Poco tune - Crazy Love
(which has a rolling and ringing style)
come to mind...

Re: 6 string banjo's

Did I see the name Keith Urban.Thats my fave!!! How ever the correct name for a six stringed banjo (like  Keith plays)is a Ganjo,> just thought Id mention that.  I think that you could try Back in Black by ACDC <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif" border=0 alt="Very Happy">

Neil Young uses a 6 string banjo on several tunes--latest being Old King from his Heart of Gold DVD--playing in drop D tuning

I have one---they're OK for backgroung banjo sound--better if capoed up 2 or 3 frets
