Subject: RE: Incredible String Band: An Appreciation.
Yes - you're right. I used to do it in open D many years ago. I just worked out the chords on the banjo - hence the confusion. Chords easily transposed to D from G. (think 1,4,5)

I think that the original recording was in G, in open D tuning but with the capo on the 5th fret.

Thanks to you posting the song - I was doodling along and played the song (and the twiddly bit) on the bouzouki. This was tuned GDAE. I was finger-picking and I found that it works very well.
