Years back I worked my way through Brad Leftwich's DVDs for "Old Time Fiddle". The videos were fine. But the documentation was in some cases of little value. The documentation contained the melody lines, which would work O.K. if a fiddle was in standard GDAE tuning. But many "old time" tunes use "open" tunings. So the documentation doesn't help much.
Has Homespun ever changed the documentation for the instructional to scordatura ? Has anyone ever bought these instructionals and written scordatura for the material ? If someone has written scordatura, I would appreciate being able to buy sscordatura for both of Brad's first two instructional DVDs. I will purchase the two DVDs again and use the scordatura when I relearn the material.
Homespun made a dvd of Bruce Molsky, called Fiddle Tour. In which he demostrates several tunes in alternate tunings. According to google it includes "music." I infer it to mean notation. I bought a copy years ago and have lost it.
Scordatura will not help you improve your cross tuned abilities. Using it bypasses the ears in a crucial way. Besides, if one is actually able to sight "read" then the notation would sound different in one's head since the notation does not always match written pitch. Seems unnecessary for someone with as much musical experience as you, Dick. Cross A is a simple enough adjustment and your ears and hands work together to make it happen.
