Posted by bostjan on Thu, 05/24/01 - 04:13:44.

I would like to know the eksact tunings for two Cooder pieces : for Maria Elena and for The Main Theme from Southern Comfort movie. I think that the first piece ( M. Elena ) is in open C and the second in double dropped D but I am not sure. I would be very pleased if you provide me these informations. Have a good time listening good music !

tuning for the things that make her rich?

I am a huge fan, since 1960 or so. Got blown away early by an instrumental in the movie,
performance. Then every album I got was better than the next. This guy is one of the top
three players in the world, imho. (ford and johnson are the others). Tattler and the one above are just huge.
I need to know the tuning so I can figure this tune out.

Re: Ry Cooder tunings

I'm not sure about Maria Elena but I do know that the Theme for Southern Comfort is using a typical Ry Cooder tuning of DADF#AD. After months of study I worked it out. You can see my attempt here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbgdPgS1SqI good luck!
