Cross-Tuning Fiddle Tune Book

Cross-tuning, or “scordatura” as it is called in classical music, refers to the practice of altering the tuning of one or more strings. This technique makes some double stops easier to play, and adds a different dimension to the basic resonance of the fiddle.

This spiral bound collection contains 39 cross-tuned fiddle tunes utilizing 11 different tunings. Scales for each of these tunings are also provided, to inform and confuse the fiddler. There are two staves for each tune as well as each scale. The top stave is the way you play the tune after you have cross-tuned. The bottom stave is the way you play the tune in standard tuning.
