Q: Do you use standard tuning, or tune a half tone low?
A: Thanks for noticing--good ear! The band does tune down 1/2 step from standard tuning. Adopted by the band through front man Michael Miller's use of the tuning from his solo acoustic career. Miller says he uses the tuning to add to his singing range, to prolong string life, and to give the music a subtle tone change.
