Sound Files: Slow Fast

One of my favorite unusually named tunes. I learned this off a Rayna Gellert album called "Ways of the World". I think she plays it cross tuned EAEA, which is fun because you can use the lower E as a drone, much less piercing than the high E. I recorded this version in standard tuning. Be careful tuning up a whole step, it's easy to break a string, but it usually makes the instrument sound amazingly resonant.
