Really? I always play it in standard tuning!
I was just watching Jason playing on youtube live and I didn't notice him retuning the guitar for that song!The Crowes do a lot of open G songs, but I also question whether this one is. There certainly aren't any licks in their version that require open G. Not to mention why would you play a song in the key of B with an open G tuning?
Some others not mentioned:
Dreamer in My Dreams
Casino Queen (if you believe Brian Henneman, though easy to play in standard)
Is That the Thanks I Get (Tweedy's guitar part)
Acuff Rose (in A, but I think it's open G/capo 2)
Have not confirmed this, but fairly sure Jason Isbell's "Super 8 Motel" is in open G as well
Sure about that? I play it in open G.
