Very true, but the TS was asking "what other good songs, other than the Stones, use Open G tuning?" ;-)
The song "Fearless" by Pink floyd.
Dylan's "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, it Takes a Train to Cry."
Jackson Brown, "Running on Empty."
I guess I need to read the OP better next time...
Money for Nothing-Dire Straits... Tush,Jesus just left Chicago, Sharp dressed man and several others by ZZ Top...Jack and Diane, John Cougar...and my favorite open G Black Crowes song Nebakenezzer ( probably spelled horribly wrong )
Dancing Days - Zeppelin.
Stay With Me is in another tuning, but I play it in Open G.
In My Time of Dying by Zeppelin! Love that song.
Well technically it's in open A but same thing, really.
Sinners prayer as performed by Joe Bonamassa & Beth Hart...........
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.
sorry if its already listed...
daughter - pearl jam
A whole lot of Ry Cooder tunes 4sure...
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:
-Can't you hear me knocking
-Honkey Tonk Women
-Start me Up
-Stack Shot Billy
-Just a Little Heat
(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.
Rollin & Tumblin
Colin James has several , some are covers , some original like ....
Shout baby shout
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!
