                      MINSTREL GIGOLO – Christopher Cross
                                   (C Cross)
                           [Christopher Cross (1979)]

Tuning: standard (solo)

The guitar solo is performed (in standard tuning) by Eric Johnson. I believe 
that the song itself (that is, the backing track guitar) is played in open D 
(D,A,D,F#,A,D) tuning. I'm pretty sure the chords are correct, but have not 
determined the appropriate chord fingerings for a guitar tuned to open D.
