                      MINSTREL GIGOLO  Christopher Cross
                                   (C Cross)
                           [Christopher Cross (1979)]

Tuning: standard (solo)

The guitar solo is performed by Eric Johnson. I believe the song itself is 
played in open D (D,A,D,F#,A,D) tuning. I'm pretty sure the chords are correct, 
but have not determined the appropriate fingerings for a guitar tuned to open D.
