Hmm Thinking Here SmileyBeen exploring cross tuning (thank you ClaireS, GregW) - recently in the Scandinavian thread but I'm thirsty to learn more. 

I found "From Appalachia to Norway, Cross Tuning" - a surprisingly enjoyable video I want to share on the subject.

 

Anyone interested?

giphy.gifHere's a cross-tuned "Devil's Tune" - originally Norwegian, but this version has an "Old Time" twist!

Little bit on rare Cajun tunings.  

I particularly like the tune (no name?) that has the E string tuned down to B - starts at 6 minutes into the video!

 

Here's general info on Cajun tuning.

Smiley Shakes Head SmileyI just wanted to cross reference some threads here - just for fun! 

From "Cape Breton Strathsbeys and Reels" thread, this was originally written as a Strathsbey by Paul Cranford, "The Open Door" - cross tuned AEAE.

From "Anyone Interested in a Scandinavian Fiddle Genre?" thread, typical Swedish and Norwegian "Fiddle" tunings. 

 

Keep an eye out for Cross Tuning in all Genres!  Isn't there even some "Classical" music written with violins that were cross tuned?
