Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Yup yup, here’s ‘saucers’. It was something that I always wanted to play and the other
on this site is REALLY incorrect. I found out via Paul Kantner himself that it is in Open
tuning, and that made it a lot easier to figure. In the intro I usually only play the 
and 5th strings. Oh, and Jorma is playing in C Minor Pentatonic in standard tuning of
He starts off with that C note on the 17th fret on the G string.
Have fun!
