Hey Bernie,

There seems to be ringing strings of a low F and middle C. So I’m guessing he may be playing with his violin tuned a step down to FCGD. But it is hard to completely tell

I think it’s tuned a step down. If you now put it up a step, to standard GDAE tuning, it sounds normal :

Maybe he played with a B/C box. Maybe the strings of the day cut hard on the fingertips. Who knows ….
