Default Pete Huttlinger's Water Is Wide Tuning

I just bought a copy of this arrangement, but the tuning is very odd, EBGDAD. Yuck! Is there an easy way to tune the guitar to this?

Have not looked at the tune, just this post. Do you possibly mean DADGBE which is dropped D tuning?

Yes, It's Drop D. DADGBE. He plays it with the capo on the third fret.

I think combining his version with Ed Gerhards version would be cool.

I'm watching Pete's video now.... Happiness is when you find you already have the notation for a tune....
