Making Me Go

MAKING ME GO

I tried figuring this one out awhile ago, and completely forgot to post it. I thought I’d throw my version into the mix.

Like Wolfdog, I originally tired Open G tuning, but found I couldn’t get some of those ringing notes in the song. My closest approximation of the tuning—from low to high—is a variation on the Open G tuning: C, G, C, G, B, D (capo at 2nd fret). If you’re using an electric guitar, and don’t want to use a capo, tune to D, A, D, A, C#, E.

Capo at 2nd fret (positions relative to capo)

INTRO/CHORUS – I’ve combined the 2 guitar parts here, so it sounds fuller when played on 1.

D---------------------- --------------------------------------
B-3---0---3---0---3-- -3---0---3---0---3-- -3---0---3---0---3-
