FiddleMatrix Band Tunes Down to A-432

For the past two practices Brad Sutton on keyboard and Mark Musser on bass have tuned with me to A-432. The practices have been creative and easy. I believe the Mozart tuning helps that.

Our plan is to practice every week this summer. By September we should have two sets ready for performance. Before that we may have some mp3 files to share.

It has been my observation when just practicing fiddle or violin, I can practice longer with less stress when I tune to A-432. Now it seems that the supportive tonality of the A-432 pitch helps the other members of the band as well.
