Cross Tuning on the Fiddle: Old Time Tunes

  • Hatch 221 Prospect Street Bellingham, WA, 98225 United States (map)

Cross tuning a fiddle means changing the relationship of the strings, deviating from the standard GDAE, to enhance the resonance of the instrument. If you’ve never tried this before – the sound it creates is magic! Come learn a 3 part tune gleaned from the playing of Rayna Gellert: Great Big Taters. We will tune our fiddles to AEAE for the bright ringing drones it creates, and have some fun with this uptempo Old Time tune.
