Thanks, Hedy, for the tuning info...and for all that great music!

I'll have to try The Brown Girl in the more typical, old-timey gCGCD tuning, although I admit it's going to be hard to shake my ear off the now-accustomed dime of the triplicate aDAAD. Another tune that sounds really fine in the aDAAD triplicate is Bascomb Lamar Lunsford's Swannoah Tunnel.

And for another interesting triplicate tuning, try gGGBD, with the fourth string dropped an octive to serve as a low drone. Makes for an appealing version of Melvin Wine's "Wine's Delight."
