Drones are back, as a download or CD

Those infamous Drones are back in tangible existence as a CD... This collection of MP4 tracks sampled at 192k contains drones of 2 tonics an octave apart and a fifth, in just intonation. Each key lasts roughly six minutes and the sequence plays through all the keys in order (the circle of 4ths starting from C).

If you just want something to give as a gift or would like to be able to touch what you buy, we have a nice stack of drone CDs on the shelf waiting to be sent out. Still $10, plus $3 for shipping and handling. here is where you'll find it.

Now also available as a digital download here.

This kind of technique has been used in Indian classical music for hundreds of years, to perfect and deepen intonation ability. One can play single notes, scales, exercises, double stops, difficult passages, or fiddle tunes to these drones; or you can just play freely and wander among the many-layered intonations of your mind and body.  Suggested: investigate playing or singing major and minor thirds (high and low) and fifths (high and low). Take your time.

Alert: Loading these drones onto your phone, music device, or (gasp) a CD or cassette may inspire addictive behavior and lots & lots of practicing.

Makes a great gift for any string musician, especially no-fret folks like Dobro players! Vocalists dig it too!

$13 price includes shipping. Please specify “CD” in “notes”.

This album contains no actual fiddle content!
