Open G tuning - DGDGBD                                     RATE AND COMMENT

Because tuning is in drop G, chords are now like this:

Excamples

   C   D   Em  G  F     G  - This G sounds better in the chorus, use it
D|-5---7--(2)-----8-----5---|
B|-5---7--(0)-----8-----3---|
G|-0---x--(0)-----x-----0---|
D|-5---7---2---5--10----0---|
G|-5---7---4---7--10----4---|
D|-x---x---2---5--x-----5---|


Its easy to figure out / get the hang of but its worth experimenting around with 
your barre chord knowledge because it can be a tricky tab ... It might look 
complex but, seriously, its not =)

I don't agree with your chords. I've played several songs in open G and the chords are barred across every string, not played staggered by 2 frets each time. For example, G major is played with the higher 5 strings open (G,D,G,B, and D), C major with thoe strings barred at the 5th fret.

Fair enough if u dont agree :)
I was working with what I saw on a Watch Over You tab lol

and by the look of some videos, they play it in standard - which (come to think of it) would have been far easier to tab! lmao

I want to post or [tab]
