Kathleen PS I need to learn this song ASAP!!!written by kathleen dunagan, April 27, 2010
Wahoo! My guitar has been in open D tuning for the last month and a half because I wanted to learn Bob Dylan's Buckets of Rain. I can play that so-so, but I'm still working on it. Anyway, because retuning constantly is such a pain and my free time is so limited, I've been looking for other songs & tunes to play in Open E (or D). So far, that includes She Talks to Angels (Black Crowes)and Prodigal Son (Rolling Stones version), both of which I can also play so-so. I knew Little Martha was in that tuning, but figuring it has evaded me. It's definitely gonna be a challenge - trying to get my thumb to keep a good steady rhythm while the rest of the fingers play something else, absolutely necessary in fingerpicking, has been hard for me to do. Anyway - thanks for this lesson, Neil! Tapwritten by mandomax, March 25, 2010
