Hey Guy ... thanks. I also like to play Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" in Drop D and "Old Laughing Lady" in Double Drop D. "Rocky Mountain High" by Denver as well.
Heh heh, I wish I was good enough to play "Embryonic Journey", sigh.
@Jud - guess I am following you from the Seagull group. Songs for Dropped D
Embryonic Journey - Jorma Kaukonen
Beeswing - Richard Thompson
Country Roads - James Taylor
Poems and Prayers and Promises - John Denver
If you feel adventuresome try Come Toghether by the Beatles with dropped D
Double Dropped D
Cinnamon Man - Neil Young
Every night When the Sun Goes Down - Tom Rush
Wow, love what I have seen on this site.
Here is a link to my 2006 arrangement of Eleanor Rigby in CGDGBD.This is one of those where the song just sort of fell out of the tuning. I'm playing it here on my 1995 Breedlove C10 which carries the bass in this low tuning very well. Laurence Juber does a similar arrangement on LJ Beatles Vol. II, only his is in CGDGAD.
Hey everyone, I'm a big fan of The John Butler Trio.I suggest trying out his Open C tuning =DThe top E and G stay the same, and the B goes up to CCGCGCESounds really good on a 12-string. =D
I love "drop D" tuning as I am a big fan of Neil Young and so much of his stuff is in tha tuning.
Anybody here know of a song list for 'Drop D" ... or have any songs to suggest"
BTW: Anybody else here play a Seagull guitar?? If so, stop by my new group and let's chat!
