    Today’s Saturday Jam is my take on the Stones’ cover of Robert Wilkins’ “Prodigal Son,” using my grandpa’s old Sears-Roebuck guitar that I had restored. Hope you enjoy!

    Nice! :) you're in open E, right?
    when open E is too much strain on my parlour guitar I tune to open D and capo on 2nd.
    same thing

    I've been playing that a lot lately too - great old song. I do it much more simply, standard tuning and more or less just strumming and trying to keep the rhythm going, but without all of the fills and bass runs you play - the chords more or less imply them anyway...

    Great version - I enjoyed it a lot...

    Yessir- Open E. I’ve never really messed with a lot of open tunings before doing this song-a-week YouTube thing. It’s been really fun!

    Thanks for all the kind words everybody!

    Great job, singing and playing. At first this is what I thought of re:prodigal Son.
