Last night on PBS, " Live From Lincoln Center " I was excited to see listed in my TV guide " The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center presents Bach's Complete Brandenburg Concertos " I wasn't too shocked to see Edgar Meyer playing DB, but was startled to see him without his little Gabrielli solo bass! He was playing a sizable dark colored five stringer! Bob Ross told me that he had talked to Edgar after one of his concerts, and Meyer told him about this fiver. Do any of you guys know what tuning he's using? Strange tunings mean nothing to this guy, so I wouldn't even offer a guess. I'm thinking he was using a higher tuning at least for the first string, because visually and note wise, he never seemed to go up the fingerboard any higher than the D harmonic on the G string. ( or what would be the G if he was tuning that way) ALL these mothers could play and if you missed it, try to catch a repeat!!
