Ry has that nice vibrato and full tone.. Keith started playing rythym guitar in this tuning. re..Honky Tonk Women..and voila, a new foundation for so many great songs...JJflash and St.FightingMan came before in open D and E though...

Other guitar player in my band- a Stones fan hates and refuses to play open G Ok we ain't a cover band but we will pull out Hand of fate. So that means I gotta play 2 guitars! Really! He sings the song with a guitar around his neck not touching it until I move to the second guitar on one of those fancy stands to play the solo THEN and only then will he play open G and only for the duration of the solo then I switch back! I joke to him that I should get some of his pay or that I should report him to the musicians union for abuse of fellow guitarist!

Yeah Ry said He stole it from me bla bla... I didn't know you could own a guitar tuning and one could be stolen.

This is the Cat that showed Kieth open G tuning, ok so Keith decided to eliminate a string, what's hard for me to digest is that K, as a young Bluesman and heavy into Muddy, didn't pick it up from Muddy's records! Ok so Muddy used 6 strings but his early recordings, in fact the very first song anyone heard from Mr. Waters is in that tuning! Could it be Keith just couldn't be bothered to learn it THEN? That tuning got the nick- name "Spanish"tuning. To my ears nothin' could be more black or bluer.
