The studio and SYF(live) are both in Bb (starts on Cm)

When did they ever do it in C (starts on Dm)?

none of the version i have...

i personaly like the feeling from playing it in Bb.

i use the key of C and G especialy alot in bluegrass tunes. so theres something about me that feels a huge difference from the commonality of C to Bb...like i dont just hear the intervals, it feels completely different to me

It's C here.
It's Bb on the album
The singer requested it in G!

gotta go with the singer i suppose...

if he feels comfortable in G its probably easier for you to transpose the chords then him stretch his vocal range

Agreed, Doc! Plus I never knew how to play it so there ya go! The only trouble is that it's funky to play with the album then play it in another key and back and forth!

BTW, the into tab is album key not tabbed key

LOL, Ed. I wasn't correcting but wanted to point it out in case anyone was working on it. It fucked me up good though. I transposed it then went to transpose your intro and got me all jacked up!
