Hey guys I have a slight problem, Im really really intrested in the delta blues and Im trying to transcribe "Hellhound on my Trail" but I cant get the tuning right. My freind tells me its a tuning called "Hellfire and Brimstone" but Im not sure........could you give me the tuning please!
I don't know what your friend is talking about, but if you want to play some delta blues, tune to either Open D, which is DADF#AD, or Open G, which is DBDGBD. I prefer Open D.

Then grab yourself a slide and have some fun.
It's Only Rock and Roll, But I like It
Are any of you familiar with any of the 12 string tunings that Blind Willie McTell used?
I've tried to work on some but it is different maybe lowered the overall tuning.
^ oops. You're right. How did I manage to mess up the root note?

open Em I believe. I'd just use open Dm and capo at the second fret though.
