Jonatha Brooke - Your House
 
Speaking of 18 years ago, first time I heard this tune I had to research who/what it was, love this tune. Found the tuning on a website, C G Eb F Bb D, if it is indeed that, kinda of a C-9/11ish thing. I didn't try to learn the tune, just messed around with the tuning a bit. Anybody have experience with this tune & or tuning? That is all.

Ever since I bought my first album by The Story in 1993, I've been a huge fan.

I saw her in a really intimate venue here in Durango two years ago. Consummate musician, really great guitarist. She played an Olson with a Fishman pickup, and retuned her alternate tunings so many times I was more interested in the strings she used—I figured most brands would have broken.

That is funny.

What an absolutely beautiful song, beautiful singing and incredible guitar sound.
Thanks so much for sharing I was not familiar with her work before.

Ah, yes, Jonatha. Loved her from the first moment I heard “Nothing Sacred,” but the entire Plumb album is fantastic. Then Steady Pull came out in ‘01 (the album “Your House” is on). I was heavily into bass at the time, and “Room In My Heart” featured Marcus Miller on fretless doing these slides into each note during the chorus - just amazing! And again, the entire album is wonderful.

I got to see her two years later in Knoxville. She was doing a gig with her band at a venue downtown, but she made an appearance at a record store (back when those existed) just with her acoustic. I was one of maybe 12 people there, and I got to talk with her a bit after. She was great.

Sorry - no help on the tuning. But, thanks for the trip down Memory Lane!
