Chain Of Fools is one of those oft- butchered bar band classics that it's easy to forget how amazing the original version actually is. Listening to Aretha tonight, I am struck by the tremolo guitar part played by Joe South. It sure sounds like a tele to me, but the e string is tuned down to a low C- Either that or it is a baritone guitar, but those low notes sound a bit floppy to me. Anybody have any insight? I think it was cut at Muscle Shoals if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure some of you must have played it over the years. I always tune my E string down to a C, but maybe I'm just weird that way. Also, the song so firmly in C minor, but I believe Joe plays a C major triad right before the vocals kick in. Anybody else hear that major 3rd?
