I can't find "shake dog shake" open tuning
« on: September 24, 2006, 08:28:25 »
Does anyone knows which weird open tuning Robert uses in "shake dog shake"? I have tried to find it in some "tabs" site, but impossible to get the right one that sounds correctly.
If someone has it, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssse "Give Me it"

i dont know what the exact tuning for shake dog shake is, i think its something around C minor, so i guess its something like:

E - D#
B - C
G - G
D - C
A - G
E - drop C maybe?

i dont know if this is correct, but listening to what robert plays on the guitar in this song, i guess this tuning would work pretty well....................hope this is some help.......

I remember seeing it listed in Guitar Player or perhaps another guitar mag a while back.  That looks right.

E - Eb
B - C
G - G
D - C
A - G
E - C


That's the one indeed. At the beginning of Shake Dog Shake from Hammersmith May 09 '84 (from cult hero's page) you can hear Robert checking the tuning and lowering the 6th string.
...when suddenly, behind a tree, I appear
strange mixture of the one-before-the-last wanderer
and first stowaway on the trip to Venus.
Half melon on the head and the stripes of the shirt painted on the skin,
but only you see me...

Awesome, thanks.

Now does anyone know the acoustic guitar tuning used for the newer versions of If Only Tonight We Could Sleep? I remember someone asked Perry about it in an interview, but he said he couldn't remember off-hand. :?

I was talking mainly about the versions they did with Perry from 2000-2004. But I think Porl may be doing the same thing...
