Hawkins Ted – There Stands The Glass tab

Subject: There Stands The Glass (Ted Hawkins) THERE STANDS THE GLASS (Russ Hull/Mary Shurtz/Michael Pierce, Unichappel Music/Jamie Music BMI) (sung by Ted Hawkins on the album "The Next Hundred Years) Ted tuned his guitar to a "dropped D" (DADF#AD) and occassionally to a dropped C (!). He then capo-ed up to the third, fourth or fifth fret and played almost exlusively open chords. His right hand strumming technique was unusually relaxed and musical; in my opinion that's what accounted for his lovely sound. And of course, there's his astounding voice! This tune has the guitar tuned to dropped D and capo-ed at the third fret. I show the chords as the positions at which they are barred.
