Cross Tuned Tunes
Saw all the discussion about alternative tunings, had a rain day, so I sawmill tuned a spare fiddle to learn Jack o' Diamonds. Seems pretty straight forward.
Are there any songs in the Lesson Area that are GDGD or AEAE? I took a glance but there doesn't seem to be any category or other indication of what might be cross-tuned.
I play all kinds of stuff in sawmill...stuff not usually done in GDGD or AEAE...or in G or A. I just try stuff out there and if I like it...I do it. Of course if you're looking for backup tracks then that's not gonna work...but if you find a guitar or banjo player willing to back you up on different keys...you're good to go.0
