Genre: Old-Time / Playing Style: Unknown/None Chosen
Piney Ridge (W.H.Stepp) recorded on my ancient Revox 4-track machine. Instruments are: Fiddle, tuned (4rd to 1st) D D A D (4th string one octave below 3rd, also used for Bonaparte's Retreat) - and a 4 string Bouzuki bought on the Greek island of Samos a couple of years ago (well, not quite Oldtimey, but it almost sounds like a Mountain Dulcimer). Tunings may not be to 440 standard, as I'm not particular when doing sound-on-sound recordings for fun - as long as the instruments are in tune between them

Sounds great, Ole! Reminds me I have to learn a bunch more tunes in this very mellow and sweet tuning. I think this one will go on the I have to learn it list!

Yeah, good stuff- and if you hadn't said it was a bouzouki, I really don't think anyone would have guessed. I had a dulcimer once with a body maybe an inch deeper than normal,
and that sounds just like it!

I LOVED it! Cool tuning. I don't know if there are mountains in Denmark, but you've deffinitely soaked up "the mountains".

Very nice! Reminds me a LOT of Sullivan's Hollow, the Mississippi tune.
