Hi all,
This is another tuning where Jesse Thomas qualifies as a major stylist on the basis of only one song recorded in the tuning. "My Heart's A Rolling Stone" shows an altogether original voice and approach in this tuning, and how Jesse Thomas could have arrived at it while still in his teens is one of the great mysteries of this music, for conceptually this piece is way beyond picking the low-hanging fruit that the tuning makes available for the player who chooses it. Here is "My Heart's A Rolling Stone":
