MP3's of D Tunes

These tunes are played in aDADE tuning; this is the double C tuning, gCGCD, tuned up a whole step. While it would be possible, on a fretted instrument, to capo G tuning at the second fret to achieve this tuning, I prefer to tune all of the strings up since I mostly play fretless instruments. I use medium gauge strings and like the added tension on the strings as a result. It really adds a "pop" to the tone. Most old-time fiddlers play in either A or D tuning, instead of the standard bluegrass G, so this tuning lets me accompany the fiddler.
