Sal, that was nice. This song, to me just screams for the Martin Rosewood overtone almost droning sound. See if you can steal an old D-28, and play this song, same way, its a perfect example of the differences between rosewood and hog, and Martin and Gibson, IMHO.

 

Fingerpicking and singing at the same time is certainly a feat, you've got the talent for it.

Sal, the drop D sounds really nice and gives it a different sound. The EEEEBE 'drone' tuning really loosens things up and you basically play the melody on the high E. Most of the stuff he's doing on Suite Judy Blue Eyes is done on the high E and B together.

 

In that tuning, the low E stays the same, A tuned down to E, D tuned up to E, G tuned down to E, high B & E stay the same.

Sal - your somewhat fragile voice kinda underlines the bleak setting of this song. I see what Duluth means, but dig the fact you go hog on your own.

 

When I listen to Stills, I hear his tough self behind the darkness - as if he intends to survive.

 

Don't know about you - perhaps a bit more sub-suicidal. .
