Just bought Mountain Shout, really enjoying it! Very nice harmonies! Is there anyway you would divulge your fiddle tuning on Blackest Crow? Spreading the word about you guys down here in NC, Thanks!

Laurel uses a lot of different cross tunings on the fiddle. The Blackest Crow, funny enough, is basically in standard tuning except with the entire fiddle tuned down a step and a half (making the lowest note E instead of G). You often hear that song in G, especially if lead by a man, so recreating our version in standard is possible.
