I started a PowerTab transcription of this great tune. Is it in regular tuning? or maybe dropped Ds (high and low) ? Any help appreciated...

anybody?
It seems to work almost equally well with the high E dropped to D, like Jesus Is Just All Right...
Has anyone else worked these out?

thanks.

Dave, which version are you listening to - the original release or the alternate version. The original is a favorite of mine. I'll give it a try also.

I don't hear a drop D or high drop D at all in the lead passages. Appears to me to be in standard tuning. Basic chords (not in order) are D sus 2 (1st and second position), G5, A sus 2, G maj (second postion) and D maj. Lead works around the chord forms in the progression. Very Honky Tonk Woman in structure, especially at the D sus 2 at the 5th bender drop. Just for fun, I threw in a lick from that song and it worked just fine. Hope this helps. Let us see the tab when you get it completed.

by the "Honky Tonk Women" chord I was refering to the chord where you fret strings 1 and 2 at the same fret, and 3 one fret below.... then you bend 3 up one step with your finger and raise the B string one step with the bender at the same time. I think Gene and Bob Warford talk about it on the strngbender record...

Your right, the songs are very similar in structure

agreed standard tuning...lots bar chords (A form) and finger slides and hammer ons and pulloffs above the chord on the 5th and 4th strings....and the lick Don is talking about it at least 2 positions on the neck....on the A and D chords

I first learned Honky Tonk woman in normal tuning and then later learned it in "Keiths" open 5 string G tuning. Looked at an alternate tuning for this song, but; concluded it is in standard.

Yes, he even plays the lick. I listen to that record often.

I think that without Clarence's finesse, this track would be a non-event. A remake of an old standard. As I pick through a slow downed lick, I contiue to be amazed of how Clarence could make so much out of so little. The alternate recording released on the extended Easy Rider CD is lifeless compared to the orginal.

by downloading the latest revision.

The bass is approximate.... Embarassed Of course so is the whole thing.
