Few suggestions on tuning:
An authentic tuning derived from Judaic worship music, where the instrument was used
to accompany the singing of the Chazzan, also known as a Cantor. This style of
tuning uses the Chazzanut mode; starting with the bass (largest strings) tune as
follows: D E F G# A B C D E F
In the early Middle Ages in Eastern Europe, the secularization of the Jewish worship
music gave rise to Klezmer music. Jewish troubadours, known as klezmorim gave the
music a place in weddings and other simkhes (joyful events). The Klezmer music
eventually blended with Slavonic, Greek, Turkish, Gypsy and even American jazz
tempos and rhythms. For Klezmer music, try the Misheberakh mode which is: E F# G A#
B C# D E F# G
Two alternative methods of tuning that work well with singers comfortable in the Key
of G are (again bass to treble): E F# G A B C D E F# G and D E F# G A B C D E F# (E
is tonic). Notice, in the second tuning, all the notes are the same but you’re
starting on D rather than E.
