I sometimes do these three as an open mic set:
Copy and pasted from a list I keep
Jesus left Chicago
Running on faith
Love at the five and dime
First girl I loved
Bad motor scooter
Can't get enough
Communion cups someone's coat
Stack shot Billy
Just a little heat
Running on empty
Come and go Blues
By your side
Bron y aur stomp
Bohemian Like You
Can't you hear me knocking
Start Me Up
Mama Help Me
Twice as hard
What I Am
Keef. the master,
often think of Start me up, Honky Tonk Woman, Brown Sugar.... and of course he got it from some of the old (& less old!) blues players.
as did the Black Keys: Junior Kimbrough, (stack shot Billy is in G, I think).
also superb in the hands of Joni Mitchell and the folkies!
What an amazing trip 40-50 years back this thread has been
+1 on Wild Horses. There is a Vid lesson in open G which I believe Keef plays it in.
There is also a Vid lesson where this nurken head plays it in standard tuning and it sounds terrible. The Vid was hilarious because he thought he was all that and couldn't tell it sounded completely wrong in standard tuning. A fairly credible performance that sounded like dog dooky.............
Capo on the 5th fret: You Can’t Always Get What You Want
Find a lesson on YouTube. It’s deceptively easy.
sweet list richiek65
Pretty much everything by Eagles of Death Metal.
Every single Black Crowes song?
Perfect for learning slide.
Bad to the Bone, as well as a few other George Thorogood songs.
Bo Diddley sounds great in Open G (Who Do You Love, Josephine, etc). Half the Stones catalog, as has been noted. Lots of Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters stuff like Clapton's Rolling & Tumbling, Come on in my Kitchen, Walking Blues, Little Red Rooster and others. Don't forget too that you can capo at the 2nd fret for Open A and get a lot of the Little Feat and Bonnie Raitt tones.
The Tele in my profile pic is permanently tuned to Open G with the action set slightly higher and flatter to make it easy to use for slide as well.
Almost any song you like.
That's a REALLY good concert set, right there!
This is true.
I use it for...
Angel From Montgomery
Hot Burrito #2
And a few others.
+1 Tupelo Honey. Good one.
Another open G-able song that popped across my ancient synapses today is Easy to Slip/Little Feat which is so cool cause you can play it in the key of D with the rhythm guitar tuned to open G. For the opening chords, leave the low D string open and bar all other strings at the 7th fret. Then chords = D-G-D, G-G, D-G-D, G-G, etc.
Outstanding! Something besides the *^%#@^* Rolling Stones. Well done.
Actually, Don Everly of the Everly Brothers taught Keith open G. It’s a banjo tuning.
What is Keefs open E tuning?
I love playing Angie in open G. It sounds stonesy-right but don't remember I've ever seen or heard it done that way.
This. Open G is our path to banjo heaven.
