very pedantic detail, but something that kinda bugs me. if the key is F, then its not A#, its Bb

It's odd to me that he didn't come up with a few more songs based around that tuning though... usually when he finds a "non-conventional" instrumentation idea that breaks from his established "normal," it is usually accompanied by a little flurry of songs chasing that newness. ie: raised b, baritone electric, veillette guitar
I think another possibility is he writes these songs in in standard tuning, then when trying to sing it he realized he needs to change the key, thus the strange tuning. Thats how i always assume a song with a capo is written. However i suppose none of us will ever know how he does it, but that may be a possibility as well.

Busted stuff doesnít make any sense though because the base tuning is still E. Busted Stuff is just odd AF

think of it this way:
- every scale has a single variation on each of the A B C D E F G notes.
- the F major scale will be F G A Bb C D E, so in the context of the F major scale, its the B that has the flat, and the A remains natural. (ie: it would be incorrect to say that the F major scale is F G A A# C D E, even though those two scales sound exactly the same)

Tim, do you think Dave could play You Never Know solo? And if not, with Tim?

I definitely think he could play it solo... and definitely also with Tim. I'm not sure why some songs seemingly fall into a category of "can't play this one without the full band" like so many have. You Never Know and Pig were probably the two "never played this way before" songs I was most hoping to see get played on the '03 D&T tour. I think they would have been stellar. (or anytime since then... I'm glad Pig finally got played in '17)

also, it occurred to me the other day that OSW and Recently have something in common: intros which are slightly extended versions of the chorus part.

cute little thing by dave there that i dont think i've ever seen in any other songs, and that he hasn't done since.

i do wonder why dave plays bartender and grey street on the 6 string with D&T. the 12-string doesn't get enough love in the D&T setting.

which reminds me, and i'm sure i've said this before, but it bears repeating: Crash Into Me sounds amazing on the 12. especially if you leave the B string open with this basic shape:

e--0
b--0
G--4 (pinky)
D--2 (index)
A--4 (ring)
E--x

with the open b, you've got a double b sound instead of a double e, and to my ear i think it sounds way better. (also easier to play, imo)

Agreed, a lot of songs sound great on the 12. Dave should really try this out with the band, it would help his wrist out a lot these days and it would sound really full still. Space Between also sounds really great on the 12. Anything with a bunch of open chords.

No idea why he plays Bartender on the 6 with Tim but my guess is that it opens a lot of shows, and no point in switching guitars right after the first song? I mean, he has a roadie so I guess thats irrelevant but the only thing that came to mind.

Tim I appreciate what youíre doing, so I donít want this to negate that in any way, but what happened to DMBTabs.com? Itís still there and you might even be able to post on the forums, but it appears that the tabs are all gone

Oh for sure, tabs are a great resource. For some reason they literally never really computed for me. I understand what they're signifying, but I've always had to sit and study them in depth to get an understanding of what is being played. It's just something with how my mind works I guess. It's like a language deficiency or something where I can understand most everything I hear and can speak fluently enough myself... but anything communicated in written form is almost entirely unrecognizable

I don't know what happened with that site... I remember back in the day it was the go to place. But yeah, like Thrawn said, I think davetabs is probably the go to now
