Rasta Dylan tuning (1) Dylan tuning 27 Aug 99


Howdy pilgrams and pilgramattes-I was riding the surf the other nite and came across a Bob Dylan sighiting bout some of his earlly works. On the Freewheelin album ,Bob does ( a hard rains a-gonna fall )a term by the way all weather men seem to use these days. It has always haunted me how Bob made the guitar sound the way it does in that song and I discovered last nite after 36 years of mystery how I think he did it, so I thought id pass it on for those who might be interested tuning -low to hi----C A D G B E----played in key of C formation with f chord played as is and then same grip at 3rd to 5th fret and as far as G chord is try this just play 5th and 6th string at 2nd fret. --that 6th string is tuned pretty low so ya gotta set it right----If ya listen to the album back then ya might see whata I mean------good luck and keep on keepin on-------Rastaaaaaa
