Tuning

Y'all come on in and sit a spell. All things Slide and alternate tuning. Celtic, country...whatever. Get your fill of DADGAD, open G and whatever tickles your fancy. Strictly on topic please.

The original recording, if I'm remembering correctly, is actually in Ab. So that means you want (low to high) Eb, Ab, Eb, Ab, C, Eb. Open G would certainly work as well, but you'd need to capo on the first fret.
