Thanks Patty. I like this tuning, too. I wanted to learn this tune so my teacher (also a fiddle player) worked it out on dulcimer for me.
That's pretty Gail. I'm going to try that tuning.
Thanks John, Ken, Cindy and Dave!
Gail - I love this! I never knew "breaking up Christmas" could be this much fun
Thanks for posting, Gail. Very nice playing and I found the history of "Breakin' Up Christmas" most interesting. I wonder if any are carrying on the traditions today.
You played that very well, and what a great sound!
I tried tuning my fiddle to AEAE and working it out. I have to say at this point it sounds a lot better on the dulcimer!
Thanks everyone. It sounds like a fun old tradition - move the furniture out of the house and play music and dance all night!
Nice song, and an interesting story behind the tune. I'll have to see if my mom remembers old and new Christmas.
Nice,...too bad you had to break up Christmas though.
That was really good, Gail. Glad to see that tuning being used.
