Hi guys... Can anyone help me figure out what tuning Steve Cropped is using on the McLemore Ave CD? Playing along with the record I have to conclude that he's using a capo because the tuning certainly isn't 'guitar friendly'! Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Cropper almost always played in standard tuning, and he sometimes used a capo to achieve a mandolin-like tone for some chord stuff.

The only altered tuning he sometimes used was open E. So what you're hearing may be open E with a capo on it.

That record is amazing. For the uninitiated, McLemore was the street where Stax was, and it's the MG's covering Abbey Road. Get it?
