Weiser Workshop – Cross Tuning
June 23, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am UTC-7
I’m really looking forward to teaching workshops again at the National Old Time Fiddler’s Contest again this year. On Wednesday, I will be teaching Cross Tuning.
Cross Tuning, also known as Cross-Key or Alternate tuning, is an essential part of the old time fiddling tradition. Cross tuning allows you to get different tonalities and feelings from your instrument. And, it’s a whole lot of fun. Participants in this workshop will learn about the history of cross tuning, common tunings, and practical considerations when you are playing cross tuned. They will also learn some fiddling history, and they will learn a cross tuned fiddle tune. This workshop is appropriate for intermediate to advanced fiddle students.
