Hello, I just love Uncle Earl's
"There is a Time". Can anyone please tell me what tuning Abigail Washburn is using? It sounds like the low drone note is an A?
Thanks in advance.

Hi, thanks for responding. I never did learn tab. Is this with a capo on the second fret? Thanks again!

The idea here is to tune down for an old-time low sounding A tuning ala John Hartford etc.not the usual capo 2 method.



























5 4 3 2 1
e A E A E
-3 -5 -3 -2 +2


Here's a table that shows the number of frets to tune down (or up) from standard open G tuning, I would advise using an electronic tuner. I've included an mp3 of the musical figure repeated 25 times. Any more questions shoot back to the forum.

Awesome, thanks for taking the time to lay all that out. I thought that low A was pretty low.
