Mike, what tuning are you using playing Winder Slide on youtube from the "front hall 073010"? Also what tuning for the version of that tune on your website? I'm having a blast learning it! Many thanks
Howdy, sorry for the slow reply, we're currently in Costa Rica! We recorded "Winder Slide" for the Chickadee album in the key of C, banjo tuning: gCGCD. In performance we capo up to E for a little extra sparkle. Capo 4: bEBEF#. The only trick with this is that you'll probably need a 5th string "railroad spike" since it can be difficult to crank em up that high. Most any fretted instrument shop should be able to install one or two spikes for very little cost. Hope this helps! Good luck and "frail well."
Can I get a setlist of your time at Pickathon? It was AWESOME! You sounded SO amazing at the Woods Stage! Much Love!Mike + Ruthy responded on 02/17/2012 Next question
Any plans to play in the NE North Carolina or SE Virginia area, or should I just plan a road trip to see you play live? :) BTW, the songs you're streaming sound fantastic - thanks for sharing them!Mike + Ruthy responded on 02/29/2012
