Songwriting for me always starts with the music. For a finger style guitarist there is are always wonderful new horizons to explore with alternative tunings.
For the curious who want to know how the songs of this album are played on guitar, I have listed the basic tuning – from 6th to 1st string.
Capo positions are numbered by the fret.
Where I have used a full capo and a partial capo together I have given those fret positions.
Legion of the Lonely is the only song where just a partial capo is used.
