Mandolin Mondays #160 w/ Special Guest Chris Henry

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.
This week on Mandolin Mondays the infamous Chris Henry brings us a South American melody played in 432 tuning on his Randy Wood F5 mandolin.



No one takes the rooted tradition of Bill Monroe to new frontiers quite like Chris Henry. Over the years, Chris has played with just about everyone in the bluegrass scene, including Audie Blaylock, Shawn Camp, Peter Rowan, and many more. He now tours worldwide, fronting his own bluegrass band Chris Henry and The Hardcore Grass.

His 2006 mandolin instrumental album Monroe Approved produced by Butch Baldassarri demonstrates his raw virtuosic traditional style with a unique forward tilt. Check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/Monroe-Approv.../dp/B000IONO6U

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then...

Happy Picking!
David

    What’s “432” tuning?

    Nice tune. Never seen plants in a Mandolin Mondays video. Just wondering what they are? From South America?

    A string tuned from 440Hz down to 432Hz and other strings in relation. Supposed to be the frequency of the universe.

    I believe 432 is what the earth and everything is tuned to! Birds, nature etc.. Then came the Nazis "supposedly by the minister of propaganda" and changed it to 440 because it agitates everything that's not natural and that for some reason is what we all go with? CRAZY yes! David Harvey and myself had a long talk about this and he also said the one gospel band The Isaacs did a whole cd in the 432 tuning and now that's all they play! Hope not to offend anyone but this is a strange conspiracy theory! I couldn't believe it when David said the Nazi's changed it and we go with it? But is it truth or just happenstance/conspiracy?

    432.5 was the pitch of the first tuning fork invented by John Shore in 1711.
    Sir James Swinburne argued for 440 to be adopted as concert pitch on mathematical grounds at an international conference in 1938/9 after it was originally suggested by Schielbler in 1826 at Stuttgart.
    Not sure what the Nazis have to do with all this.
