Description
This an open tuning that Michael Hedges Liked to use especially on the 3rd fret. But I am using it on the first fret.

You amaze me....
You are a never ending fount of guitar finger picking
creativity. I love that little "seventh" (or maybe ninth)
note you throw in there. Just a little twangy twist in
this cool little song.

I was challenging to compose with so many strings away from the regular E
tuning. That is one reason I posted the notes as the title.

Thanks

Incredible
I loved the parts with bass and treble at the same time.

When I saw this title on one of the lists, the first thing that
popped into my mind was "gotta be T."

I'm very curious as to why the capo?

A fine tune T.

Thanks

In regards to using a capo!

Good point, a few things about the capo:
Sometimes you can get a sweeter sound, like in the tune Emily by Simon &
Garfunkel. That guitar solo work on that tune is so sweet primarily because of
the capo and the richness of Garfunkels soulful singing and the guitarists
brilliant fingerpicking. But the capo makes that tune. It is just an incredible
piece of lttle guitar musical craftsmanship. On that tune it seems like the
capo's maybe up to the 6th fret.

Another thing is when you change to open tuning, many times the strings get
looserk, (slinkier) and and don't always sound solid so a capo helps prevents
that.

Thanks so much snow for coming by.

Ah, makes a lot of sense T. About the only open tuning I've every used is
open E (Stones' Prodigal Son, Robert Johnson's Sweet Home Chicago, Come
on in My Kitchen), which doesn't require tuning strings down, only up. I'll
have to try that open tuning of yours one of these days.

You mention Hedges...
...but despite the tuning, I hear more of a Davey Graham,
Ralph McTell, Bert Jansch kind of thing going on, I guess
coming from the pattern in the right hand...

Reminds me a lot of those early British Soho fingerpicky
things. Very nice. Something along these lines can also be
cool to have a collaborator come in on a la John Renbourn
with Jansch, or even a bass player like Danny
Thompson...give you that woody growl underneath as you
might find in Pentangle or John Martyn or Nick Drake...

I found myself wondering what this would sound like if
taken at a slower tempo and with a bass. Not a criticism of
how this sounds, but just wondering. With something like
this, it has structure, but to my ears you could play with it.

Another really nice piece of acoustic guitar.

I will also mention that, despite being pretty much a
standard tuning kind of guy, I do love capos. I agree with
what you wrote about S&G, and I also used to love the old
Jethro Tull things where Ian Anderson put the capo up on
fret five or seven on a good parlor guitar...

Off t' download...

A Highway Song
Because this piece moves around so much and has such a
wealth of energy, it gives me a feel of being out on the
road. Zipping past fields and patches of woods on a nice
sunny day. Next time I take a road trip this will go in the
CD player.

Darn you!
As usual, you play very well and can get that getbox really
moving! I envy that in your playing as it is neither my style
nor my particular talent. This time you got it clear and
expressive as I have mentioned in another post that the
nuances would be picked up if it were either straight miced
or without any effects. Very solid, beautiful and your mastery
I give you kudos for. So, you live in Santa Cruz area? I live in
Sacramento. We are subjects of our great ruler
Schwartzenegger! LOL

Keep going.

Hi Tiler
Well, it took me a while to find this one! The moving bass line is a hit with me and drives this excellent composition. I'm a fan of open tunnings but have never explored this one so thanks for posting it.
best wishes
