And as a result of this interest, more and more old manuscripts are being discovered, such as the ‘Altfrentsch’ collection of Appenzell music from the 18th century, the Peter Davoli collection from Samedan (1895) or the music book of Anton Stadelmann of Central Switzerland from 1824 (see below for more details). Despite the fresh breeze blowing and the change in our perception of our traditional music, we in Switzerland are only at the beginning of a development that had been set in motion in other countries as early as the 1970s. ‘Back to the roots’ was the motto of the folk movement back then, when many countries discovered their original folk music and brought it to new life. With few exceptions, the folk movement in Switzerland at the time was interested in almost everything except its own traditions.

". The Bakersfield Sound has such a large influence on the West Coast music scene that many small guitar companies set up shop in Bakersfield in the 1960s.

Mapleshade Records - Danny Knicely and Will Lee. Bluegrass Unlimited by Henry Koretzky It's unfortunate tthe duo format has been relegated to the sidelines of contemporary bluegrass, in favor of the fullsized (quartet or quintet) band. From the stylistic ancestors and cousins like the Monroe Brothers, the Louvins, Hazel and Alice, and the Blue Sky Boys, to current paired performers such as Jim Hurst & Missy Raines, we can be reminded that there's a lot to commend that spares format of two voices and two instruments working closely and skillfully together. Which brings us to this fine new recording by Danny Knicely and Will Lee.

An Introduction to Historical Tunings. Or if G vibrates at 100 cycles per second, then B vibrates at 125, and so on. (If you'd like this explained in more detail, visit my Just Intonation Explained page.) The size of a pure 5:4 major third is 386.3 cents, a cent being one 1200th of an octave, or one 100th of a half-step.

Since an octave is 1200 cents, by definition, it is easy to see that three pure major thirds (3 x 386.3 cents = 1158.9) do not equal an octave. That's the whole problem of keyboard tuning, where you're limited to 12 steps per octave. Where do you put the gaps in your chains of perfect major thirds? A pure perfect fifth is a 3 to 2 frequency ratio; if. Take in the work of the comedy provocateurs in Million Dollar Extreme.
