Cross-tuning:

Let's Explore!

Betty Druckenmiller

Many old-time tunes were played with the fiddle tuned to something other than the standard GDAE. Explore one or two ways to follow this tradition - it's fun and authentic!

We'll plan to start in "standard," with a tune or two in D, then start re-tuning and see what happens! Please bring your choice of tuner and don't think about where those black dots would be on the page!
