-mstangboy | 7/16/2003
your close played along with the cd capo on 3 fret but GUITAR tuned DADGAD so all the open strings ring out. Give it a shot.

if u wanna see Dan Tyminski(the guy who does it) play it, get the Eric Clapton Crossroads dvd. he is on there and does it.
-guitarplayer456 | 1/6/2005

-bryan_guenther | 6/17/2005
