Double C tunes

Posted by clawfootcurt on Thursday, June 7, 2007

So, the misses has been taking dulcimer lessons, she's had four so far, and she is already getting pretty darn good.  So I figured, since she is learning most in DAD tuning, that I better start learning some stuff in C tunings.  I have been using Wayne Erbsens Ignoramus book, and this week have been learning Old Molly Hare, Old Blue, (which is surprisingly fun when adding hammer-ons), and Cumberland Mountain Deer Chase, which I think I am really gonna like when my fingers get it memorized.  There is a picture of Uncle Dave Macon from about 1925 in the book, and boy does he look like he's having fun.  This banjo stuff is the best!!!

P.S.  I suppose I should learn something she plays, but I don't have any of the right tab yet.  Playing together should be fun too.  I wonder how long that will take?

It's hard to go past the double C tuning - specially if you also have some fiddle or mandolin background. Good luck with it all and the grandkids look great.
