    Don't know how good that one is, but the song sounds 1,000 times better with the open tuning.

    it is a pain in the ass trying to play it in standard. much easier with open tuning. just like given to fly is a pain in the ass in standard..

    yeah in that tuning you play alot of open strings that you don't have to fret. tons easier than trying to make chords when you don't have to. cheers!

    Open G is the easiest way I've found to play it. It's the way Stone plays it as well. Just tune the top two strings(5th & 6th) to G. I tune the 6th up two whole steps and tune the 5th down a whole step. If you can,watch Stone play it on Touring Band 2000, it helps to get a good feel for the way he's doing it.

  • Its pretty simple to tune it, and its easy one you get it all together. Its an hour to learn at most. Standard tuning is way harder.

    Thanks, all.

    I wanted to fit Daughter into my acoustic repertoire, hence the request for standard tuning. But, you're suggestions make it easy enough to tune; or maybe I'll just use my old fender acoustic only for Daughter

    Cheers

    Maybe you can add other songs with that tuning to make it "Worth" it.

    I was never big on open tunings but have found out recently that they do make it light years easier to play some songs. Plus you get a great ringing with open strings that you just don't get with fretted ones.
