Who plays this with a capo?

Sunandsteel - probably nobody. I just put that there for completeness. Shifting it -5 allows me to sing and play this one string down. I selfishly work these out for my own low voice and post them directly. For anyone wanting to play along with the original key, just click the transpose button to restore original key (I wouldn't recommend the capo here!).

Anyone with a naturally lower singing voice can take any of my songs and play them as shown (generally not higher than middle C).
