(Patrick von Wiegandt)

Ye Olde Tune Sample

Patrick VW: citern

Recorded By: Patrick VW

Mixed by Pierre Grill

This is truly an olden tune for me. I made it up about 35 years ago when I learned this Open C tuning from a friend. C-G-C-G-C-E.

I never had a name for it and never knew what to call it and I didn't want to call it Open C, so about 10 years ago, I got this 8 stringed Irish instrument called a citern (looks like a lute, tuned like a mandolin.) I did not like the mandolin tuning (maybe if I learned to play in it -- I would like it) so I tuned it to the open C tuning but dropped down a step and a half to open A -- so it became A-E-A-C#. Got it?

I recorded the piece and then did a double track to it and panned them left and right for a fuller stereo sound. Not much more to be done with this piece.

It is from this song that I stole the lick for 10 K at 6 AM. I'll probably rob something else from this at a future date.

Hey, if you cant steal from yourself...

Feel free to steal from it too.
