                DAVID CROSBY TUNINGS

In July 1988 the now defunct Frets magazine published an interview of 
David Crosby. I encourage you to find a copy of it at your local library 
if you can.  In addition to the interview it includes a transcription of 
the song Guinnevere and a list of the tunings he used.  Here's the list 
of tunings so that people who like songs in alternate tunings can start 
figuring out some of these and hopefully post them!  Additions to this 
list are of course very welcome- obviously songs from his more recent 
solo albums are not included here as the interview was in 1988.

*= Laughing and Triad were also both done by the Byrds.  Their version of 
Triad is on the Box Set, and the version of Laughing is on the out of 
print 1973 reunion album The Byrds.
+= Kids and Dogs apparently was done around 1970 as a duet with Jerry 
Garcia.  Does anyone know of a bootleg with this on it?
P.S.- the article also mentions that Bluebird by Stephen Stills is in
D A D G B D
P.P.S.- the April 1988 issue of Frets has an article about Nick Drake 
with a transcription of the song Road and lots of other good info for 
guitarists interested in him.
