Florida Blues sounds like...

Credit to Gatorchick and her Florida Blues blog. Got me off the dime of inertia.

This blog is about A 432 and all the etheric baggage I can cram into this concept. It needs some sounds to show what it's all about.

When you click on Profile and then click on the audio, you get to hear someting. Right now you hear "Florida Blues," as I fiddled it on Nov. 12.

In a week, I'll change that to an intro that talks and plays fiddle. I may play new segments to create new audio files to go with that link.

Archived stuff will be at the A-432 section of my Grassapelli site.

Most new modern are also finding a home tuning down a little.

By the way i'm a pro-player that thought playing fiddle would be a breeze, as I smoke a mandolin...man was I bad on violin, still not that great.

My hats off to you thanks!!!!

I wish I could sing. I can't carry a tune in a bucket--even with a lid on it! I would appreciate everyone moving down 8 cycles per second.

It seems to me that most of the great hymns are written in A flat. Perhaps that is to accomodate the majority of singing participants.

Moving the music this up a half step by lowering the frequency would be welcome to string players and other instrumentalist. As a beginning fiddler, I certainly like to keep things simple. Besides, I always worry about that string popping as I try to bring it into pitch.
