Subject: Tune Req: Holly Takes A Chance / Walnut Tuning
From: Etan
Date: 11 Jul 11 - 02:35 PM

I've just returned from a weekend in Central Pennsylvania, where I heard someone play a an old fiddle tune he called "Holly Takes A Chance" in Walnut Tuning. I have the tune recorded (badly) but I can't find the tuning or any reference to the song on the internet. Does anybody know anything about "Holly Takes A Chance" or Walnut Tuning?

I have a sneaky suspicion that the tuning is similar to a dulcimer tuning, translated for 5-string banjo. It may also be specific to the song as is done with Reuben's Train tuning.

Thanks in advance.
