Bobby tuned down a half step?!

Bobby tuned down a half step?!

Postby strumminsix » Thu Jun 18, 2015 8:46 am

Was watching the movie "The Other One" and went to play along with Bobby to Lost Sailor and it appears he's tuned down a half-step doing the solo acoustic set.

Is he doing that on stage too??

It's possible, haven't tried to play along with movie clip but Bobby always seemed to struggle vocally with the high notes.

Oh sure. I've just never seen Bobby tuned down.

He was tuned down but playing in the same positions. So really was dropping the whole song a half step.

I think it's just the way it's recorded
