==================================================================
MAKE SURE YOU READ ABOUT THE TUNING BEFORE JUMPING INTO THE TAB!!!
==================================================================

The tuning is weird. Chris and Dave might play it a half step down
or something else. I don't know for sure. But if you use the tuning
below, it will be just fine!!


         (DADGGe)
  High e: stays the same
       B: tune down to G  \ these stings will sound
       G: stays the same  / the exact same
       D: stays the same
       A: stays the same
   Low E: tune down to D


==================================================================

this is really good....howd you figure out the tuning

0 reply
tectactoe 153 May 03, 2006 04:04 PM

i actually figured it out without tuning differently, but it was an almost impossible stretch with your fingers, so I came up with this tuning that worked pretty good. some people think the 8th to 12th fret is a stretch but its not too bad, and IMO its the easiest way to play the song. thanks for the praise.

they have been using half step down since in reverie, so my guess is that what the tuning is for this song
