Tonic - Soldiers Daughter
From "Lemon Parade" Album
tuning: Acoustics/Electric Guitar in DADF#AE but capo 4th fret
tabbed by jjhand

This is the way that Emerson and Jeff play it in Tonic. Tune down 2nd and 6th strings
a full step and the 3rd string a half step to get open Dadd9 tuning.

This was as close as I could get, so have fun and rate or comment please.

Intro - Two Acoustics
