U saw Joe play this live but

Does anyone kno how he transposed this piece cause its usually half a step down? or did he just play it as normal on a standard tuned guitar because he seemed to use the same guitar for flying in a blue dream and a few others?

and also

Does anyone kno where i can find the harmonica notes for the song and what key harmonica is used?

he just plays it normal in standard tuning. I love that song.

i dont know about the harmonica all i know is that he recorded it with "When the Levee Breaks" in his mind and with a tremelo amp

Perhaps he was just trying out some "new sound". Tuning half step down gives you a few options for chord combinations that you normally wouldn't be able to do... plus, perhaps his guitar gives him a certain tone that he can't otherwise get when it is tuned normally... I know it is the case for my vintage Washburn N2.

Is a guitar from the 90`s already considered a "vintage" instrument?
