    Very true, but the TS was asking "what other good songs, other than the Stones, use Open G tuning?" ;-)

    In My Time of Dying by Zeppelin! Love that song.

    Well technically it's in open A but same thing, really.

    Jesus Just Left Chicago isn't in open G – it's in EGDGBE (only the fifth string is dropped by a whole step). Billy Gibbons plays it in standard live. Tush and Sharp Dressed Man are in standard, too, I believe...

    My favourite song to play in open G is 'Communion Cups and Someone's Coat' by Iron and Wine – a really nice acoustic fingerpicker with a capo at the fourth fret. Once you have the tuning, it's pretty straightforward to work out.

    Yes and several are in open D . As good as George is there's a member of his band and a big part of his sound that deserves mention , Jim Suhler .

    Jim has several albums to his credit with his band "Monkey beat" , known for using open tunings and extensive use of slide guitar . A good listen

    These two , Jim Suhler & Jason Elmore , play a great acoustic version of Highway 49............

    Have any of these been mentioned? They are all in open g:

    Stones:
    -Can't you hear me knocking
    -Honkey Tonk Women
    -Brown Sugar
    -Start me Up

    Black Keys:
    -Stack Shot Billy
    -Busted
    -Elevator
    -Just a Little Heat

    White Stripes:
    -Death Letter
    -Little Bird
    (there are many others I can't think of off the top of my head)

    George Thorogood, Joni Mitchell and the Black Crowes also have many songs in open G.

    Crossroads Blues

    Walkin Blues

    Colin James has several , some are covers , some original like ....

    Shout baby shout

    National steel

    These arms of mine

    Ride & roll

    Much of his National steel album is in some kind of open tuning , a must have record for Colin James fans.

    There have been some Rolling Stones songs mentioned , lot's of those are fun to play , " All down the line" has always been a crowd pleaser

    I'm pretty sure Jeff Buckley's "Last Goodbye" is in open G, and it's a pretty fun tune to learn!
