Are there alternate tunings for violin?

Cross tuning or cross-tuning (aka scordatura) is an alternative tuning used for the open strings of a string instrument. The term refers to the practice of retuning the strings; it also refers to the various tunings commonly used, or in some contexts it may refer to the AEAE fiddle tuning.

Can violin play high pitch sound?

We can hear sounds from about 15 Hz to 20 kHz (1 kHz = 1000 Hz). A double bass can play down to 41 Hz or below, and the violin can play notes with fundamental frequencies well above 2 kHz. Human ears are most sensitive to sounds between 1 and 4 kHz – about two to four octaves above middle C.

What happens if you put too much rosin on a bow?

Too much rosin will make the bow feel stickier as it moves across the strings. Excess rosin can generate a cloud of rosin dust as you play, and the sound will be harsh and scratchy.

Is a fiddle tuned differently than a violin?

For violin, synthetic strings are often preferred, with an unwrapped steel E string on the end, requiring a fine tuner. The violin is tuned to perfect fifths (GDAE). Fiddle players typically use all steel strings and rely on peg tuning as well as a fine tuner. Their tuning depends on the music they are playing.

What is GDAE tuning?

GDAE follows the violin tuning and offers the most versatile approach to transposing and playing in all keys. Open tunings are for strumming frequent chords in one or two keys with a minimum of fingering.
