From one of the greatest live albums ever recorded, and which appear as much tamer versions with the Velvet Underground.   Guitar duo of Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter is beyond incendiary.   Both ridic

Don't Let It Bring You Down by Neil Young-I'm learning this one today...

Old man lying by the side of the road

With the lorries rolling by,

Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load

And the buildings scrape the sky,

Cold wind ripping down the alley at dawn

And the morning paper flies,

Dead man lying by the side of the road

With the daylight in his eyes.

Don't let it bring you down

It's only castles burning,

Find someone who's turning

And you will come around.

Blind man running through the light of the night

With an answer in his hand,

Come on down to the river of sight

And you can really understand,

Red lights flashing through the window in the rain,

Can you hear the sirens moan?

White cane lying in a gutter in the lane,

If you're walking home alone.

Don't let it bring you down

It's only castles burning,

Just find someone who's turning

And you will come around.

Don't let it bring you down

It's only castles burning,

Just find someone who's turning

And you will come around.

Doesn't this song have some kind of open tuning?

I remember trying to learn it from the record a long time ago and giving up.

I listened to 2 different versions that I have of it yesterday Doug and the live one from Massey Hall you can hear him tuning the two "E's" down to "D's"-I'm using a capo on the 3rd fret and only tuning the low E down

also it's a tough one to sing he's way up there but it only sounds good if you keep it in the original key-some songs can be effectively transposed and some must be kept right-for some reason

The dreaded double drop D tuning.

:)

The End by the Doors uses this too.

For DLIBYD I think Neil uses some interesting chord fingerings as well.

If you can nail this song Jim, it will go over well in your set.

yea it's gonna be one of those songs you can only do when you're having a good night vocally-otherwise you end up embarrassing yourself
