can someone suggest some dashboard confessional songs that are in standard tuning instead of the random tunings chris carraba seems to use so much?

heh, I don't know of any. Although Hands Down, Stolen, and So Long, So Long are all just a half step down..so I hope that helps.
Ghost of a Good Thing
Bend and Not Break (Capo on 2)
Dusk and Summer (Capo on 2)

There's actually a lot that are in standard.
^ Don't believe that.
Anyone, anyone
For Justin

Theyre all early recordings that arent on any albums. I think theyre on an early EP he released.
