I meant to write earlier in the day, but I lost track of time.
Recently, I’d say within the past seven months, I started to seriously play in open G. The tuning of Keith Richards (among others). I know nearly every Rolling Stones song in open G. I had written a bit, or tried to write, in open G, but everything sounded like the Rolling Stones. That is not a bad thing at all, but sadly I can’t rerelease Brown Sugar. Mick would not approve.
I’m starting to reach the point where everything I play no longer sounds exactly like the Rolling Stones. And it’s exciting. The Rolling Stones don’t want me to sound exactly like them.
And nor do I.
I wish you all the best in 2013. Godspeed, everyone.
