Kitchen Girl in AEAE Tuning

Here's a new way to play fiddle tunes in A that is surprisingly easy to do. I've only just started so I'm no expert, but tuning your two bass strings up a tone to A and E means you can play a lot more open strings on A tunes, which sounds nice. Some people call it cross tuning or sawmill tuning. Also because the tuning is that same as the top two strings just an octave lower, you can use the same scale patterns you use on the top two on the lower two, so it's very easy.
