M Ward - Chinese Translation tab

most of m. ward's songs are in a fairly unused open d tuning. slack key players call it
"old mauna loa" i believe.
 and some old school blues players use it. its open d but the bottom (high sounding) 
strings remain at
 "B" "e"… so its DADF#Be. and when u strum it open, it sounds like most m ward songs already.
