Try that and Bron Yr Aur Stomp by Led Zeppelin

I think it's in C6

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/l/led_zeppelin/bron_yr_aur_stomp_tab.htm

Have fun!



Alot of people mistake "Bron Y aur Stomp" for "Bron Yr Aur".

-"Bron Yr Aur" is played in open C6.. the tab for this can be found here http://www.guitaretab.com/l/led-zeppelin/10193.html

-"Bron Y Aur Stomp" is played in CFCFAF (open F?) and the tab can be found in the quote above.
Gear:
-Fender Mexican Telecaster
-Vox VR15 amp
-Yamaha FG-700S acoustic
-No name classical guitar with a stinky greasy fretboard

That has gotta be one of the most pansy tunings I've ever seen. What is that for, a friggin slide guitar?

Anyways, alt tunings:

Some Poison and G n' R songs have some alternate, or dropped step tunings that sound nice. Depends on your talent level and what you're looking for complexity wise.

well, isn't the fact that you cant play good charlotte or linking park the main reason for why you should buy an acoustic?
