Hey folks, i'm still working on OT jamming tuned GDGD, sometimes with a second fret capo(!) for good ol' drones. Anyways, I was curious if anyone had some resources on how to actually utilize this tunning. As i understand it is primarily employed on fiddle to provide access to easy drone notes. Right now im playing melody and connecting the double stops whenever it seems convinent, much like i might on a standard tuned mando.
Anyways any helpful fiddle resources, or even better, mandolin resources, would be dandy.
A fun thing about this tunning is playing fiddle tunes lap steel style. Put on a light slide and finger picks and you defiantly have a unique sound for the next old time jam. Right now alot of my picking is merely octave melodies and power chord drones but, I think that style of mandolin might have a lot of potential as more than a novelty trick.
