Blues Man

This is a question for some of the "older" members(maybe). Stephen Stills and Manassas recorded a song called the " Blues Man". It's a good acoustic blues song but, for the life of me, I can't figure out what tuning he did this song in. I know Stills did a lot of non-standard tuning. If he did do it in standard tuning then I'm having a heck of a time figuring out the verse chords. I've tried "googling" the tabs for it but no luck. So if there are any Stills fans out there maybe you can help me out on this one. I figured if anyone would know, it would be you guys in this great forum. I know this is a long shot. Thanks.....

Thanks, Demo. Those are good articles. You can see where the Joni Mitchell influence came into play for CSN&Y. I messed around with the song more last night and finally figured it out in standard tuning but it still doesn't have quite the "Stills" sound...I'll play around with some of the alternate tuning. Thanks for the research and help.........
