Subject: RE: Messing around on 'Early Morning Rain'
Thanks, leeneia - I'd almost forgotten I'd recorded this one!

The tuning of the tenor guitar - in 5ths, unlike the conventional 6-string guitar - somehow allows a more lyrical kind of playing and improvisation. I think less in chords and more in melody lines. That's why I love playing it so much.
