One too many mornings - Open A - J-45

Recommended Posts

This song came up suggested by Em7 as a good one for BBG to show his new D16. I agree - hope he plonks a version here when he gets a chance.And anyone else too.

I tried to learn this open tuning version a couple of years ago and gave up.I revisited in the last couple of days and it seemed to come easier.I've never come across this tuning anywhere else. E A C# e a c#.

I've tried open A tunings in blues songs but they were a bit different.This seems more a modal tuning.

Anyway always loved this song - so this is sort of how Dylan played it on Times they are a changin' album.He probably never used this tuning live I'd guess.Capo on 3 key of C.

Cheers

edit..while recording this I was playing on line scabble and my friend played her word half way through the song.My ipad made a little notification noise-which is audible.See if you sound detectives can spot it.

Fine go at a fine song ^ this stuff is rollin' in your veins.

The tuning is something else. Worth investigating.

Cheers everyone.Thanks so much for the positive comments.Thanks Em7 for sewing the seed of a not so often talked of good song.I always feel like this was written by a guy that's lived 100 years..not 23.

I felt 100 last night,maybe that's why it came out ok.

I think he gets that a lot. Bob Dylan's Dream (age 22), Boots of Spanish leather (age 23), Lay down Your Weary Tune (age 22), Hard Rain (age 22), and so on and so forth.

Not to mention Mr. Tambourine man, at age 24...
