Did you work this tuning out yourself or? I always heard Piggy had a different tuning, at least Newsted has said that. But it's hard to know which songs he used it on.
I also read an interview where they said Piggy use many tuning on Phobos. After that I put Gb, Bb, Eb because it follows usual left arm mouvement. And Piggy was a master re-use chord progression in such way it never feel like the same riff. Following that, the chorus in that tuning is the same finger position of Forgotten In Space chorus.
I know what you mean. For a guy whose music was so varied and unique to him, he really did a lot with a little. He got so much mileage out of certain melodic patterns and chord progressions but you can't say he ever copied himself. I really love what Voivod does now, but it has to be more technical to capture a feel that Piggy did naturally and simply.
