Does anybody here do Love in Vain as a lone guitar with a mix of finger picking and slide fills? I would be interested to know what tuning you do it in. When I play it acoustically I play in standard tuning, key of G, but without a solo. I would like to play it on my LP similar to the Ya Ya's version with a slide solo. But should I open tune? I have always played in standard tuning so open is a bit foreign to me. For example, I'm not sure how to finger the Dm and G7 chords if I'm in open E or G. Thoughts?
