Hi Mary -

I use a few different tunings on that album - some songs are in standard tuning, some are in a standard relationship but all strings dropped down a step and a half, some tunes are in what fiddler's call a 'cross tuning' (AEAE, or GDGD), and on some I have just the bottom string tuned up a step (ADAE or GCGD).

Have fun! Sorry for our delayed response. We hope to see you out in California someday.

Best,
Laurel Premo
