Love your rendition of The Blackest Crow, that is the song that introduced me to your music, and I am trying to figure out what you have your fiddle cross tuned to. I am a relatively new fiddle played but the way you play this easy little song is truly unique. Love your music.

The tuning is E, B, F#, C#. Basically the whole fiddle is tuned down a step and a half, and the tune is played out of the G position. Laurel keeps a separate fiddle for this tuning (that we call her Low fiddle) because it's hard on the instrument to be tuned up and down all the time. Hope this helps.

Best,
Michael
