Does anyone know what tuning Martin Simpson uses for Anne Lister's song "Moth" please?

Mike - if you became a Mudcat member you could PM Tabster and ask Anne Lister!

When you join, a PM symbol appears next to people's names,and on your personal page, it stands for Personal Message.You can only PM someone as a member. Tabster is the Mudcat name Anne uses so she could tell you herself.

Trouble is, I don't know what tunings Martin uses for my songs when he plays them! I've PM'd Mike to this effect.

Happy to help with my chords where necessary, and I just use standard guitar tuning.

Where full song tablature is available from Martin's site, the tuning is listed on the page. Unfortunately, Moth is not available so no joy there, sorry.

For anyone who is interested, Martin uses dropped D for this song.

          Em       D                C
I have flown to close to the candle
          Em             D                C
And I feel that my wings are aflame
             Em             D            C          Bm
I should never have flown so close to you
         C             Bm       C
And I feel that I won’t fly again

Chorus
          G                        D          Em C
There should be some kind of a warning
    Em             D             C
To those of us who fly by night
          G          D                   Em C
To be ware of cold air of the morning
          Em    D                   Em
And to keep away from the light
