What tunings is the fiddle in on the CD that has Pretty Polly? I love your playing and want to learn them! Thanks. Mary in Oakland
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.
Happy New Year! I have to say that its a rare gift to be so authentic and innovative at the same time. Hope you would consider booking a mini tour through this part of the country.Red Tail Ring responded on 02/09/2013 Next question
I saw you last year@Fox Valley Folk Festival in Geneva. Are you in touch with Lilli Kuzma @WDCB Radio? Could you email me your list of venues out here that I can add to? Thank you! Julie A. RobertsRed Tail Ring responded on 02/09/2013
