Standard Open D Tuning
Best For Acoustic Guitar


There are two options for tuning:

NUMBER ONE - OPEN D (With a capo on 1)

Some people might prefer this as open D is a more common tuning and could be used on a 
set with other songs!
It also means only tuning strings down, which reduces the chance of them breaking on 
etc..!  All following
notation is relative to the capo!

D (Down)
A (Down)
F# (Down)
D
A
D (Down)

NUMBER TWO - OPEN Eb

This is an alternative if you dont have a capo and are willing to risk your strings, but 
is esentially the same!

Eb (Down)
Bb (Down)
G
Eb (Up)
Bb (Up)
Eb (Down)

Great tab! Best one I've seen by far.

Couple suggestions with the intro. Here's what I'm hearing:
Abmaj9 Bb7 Abadd9/C (might just be a Cm, they're similar chords)
Abmaj9 Bb7 Abadd9/C Eb (I'm hearing the Eb passing from the Ab/C to the Ab)
Abmaj9 Bb7 Abadd9/C
