This tune was requested by a Gold Member, and I was psyched to learn it and teach it.  Crosstuned fiddling is loads of fun because the entire instrument rings and produces an incredibly full sound.  The sheet music includes both the standard notation and the tablature in the same document.  It's difficult to translate standard notation into fingerings when your instrument is tuned in an unconventional way, so I've added the tablature to make it easier.  Also, in this lesson I not only teach you the tune, but also a couple of tricks to playing comfortably in different tunings.  There are some simple yet effective mental techniques that allow you to play in altered tunings as comfortably as in standard tuning, and help you easily transfer all of your knowledge from standard tunings to your crosstuned pieces. Enjoy!
