The orig­i­nal 12-string acous­tic gui­tar Page 1 of 1 is tuned down a whole tone, so although you’ll Notes:be play­ing D and Dsus4 etc, you’ll be ‘think­ing’ E and Esus4. For all of George’s live per­for­mances, he plays down a fur­ther tone – prob­a­bly to make it easier to sing – but the con­cept is ex­actly the same. If you want to come down the full two tones to match th­ese per­for­mances, you should re­ally con­sider us­ing at least .13 gauge strings to avoid un­sta­ble tun­ing.
