Just a quick question about Nick Drake - don't know what folks think about his music - I really think his guitar and his tunings are beautiful stuff. My question is about his tunings - I went to azchords.com and found the tuning for Pink Moon, tuned the guitar to that tuning and played along with the cd to get the right feel - long story short, the tuning suggested by azchords.com doesn't sound right against the cd. It sounds right by itelf, but when played with the cd, there is something off.
The tuning in question is (from low to high):
DADGDF# - it is a gorgeous tuning, it just doesn't sound right when played against the cd. To get to that tuning, I placed a capo at the third fret (didn't want to try tuning a B string all the way to D! without a capo)
Does anyone know if the azchors.com tuning is correct? Are my ears playing tricks? Is there an "official" Nick Drake site or songbook that could offer more accurate representations of his music? Any help would be appreciated . . .
