    Default Delmores Tenor Tuning?

    What tuning did Rabon Delmore use?

    I looked him up, I hadn't heard of him before (but now i have!), it looks like he did indeed play tenor along with mando and fiddle as well? It appears that he's using a CGDA tuning in his fingerings on his tenor. I'd speculate a CGDA tuning as well just given the times and style of music.

    I discovered the Delmore Bros recordings, by chance, back in the 70's, love their tunes and playing. Saw this post, because now I'm looking to replace the '30 Gibson TG0 I sold several years ago, and just fixed up a '40's Kay tenor. Now I'm searching for a Martin 0-18t, like Rabon used to play.
