Good Day Mike Wow I play some and like different tunings. I suppose you can play in open C by dropping the 5th string A to G and the fourth string D to C.Tune up the B a half step to C and and you should be in business. Don't ask me abouut Joni Mitchell's tunings.
Avatar    Sat. 9/10/16 11:43am Michael Shelley:

The bad Co. tune is C, C, G, E, C, C !

Thanks Mike. I just busted out my Dean Acoustic Electric and tuned to the notes I mentioned. Groovy!! I'll be doing Stones songs. Hey , you can't always get what you want.

RE: Ben Vaughn , The only other person I can think of that uses an all sax horn section is Van Morrison
  Sat. 9/10/16 12:30pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

I guess a all sax horn section is an oxymoron
  Sat. 9/10/16 12:32pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

Brass section , Is what I should have said ..ok enough
