Tangled Up in Blues has become Tangled Up in Blue, as I’ve ditched the standard tuning of my guitar for an open D and spent a couple of hours learning the fantastic alternative version of this classic Dylan track. Along with released bootleg tracks “Idiot Wind” and “If You See Her Say, Hello”, this is a gem from the original New York recording of the album that was later changed into its released version.

The open D gives it a fantasticly clear and vibrant sound, one that fits the emotions of the more personal songs perfectly.

I can’t uplaod mp3s to the blog (not even sure if that would be legal or not), but you can find the song on the Bootleg Series, Volume 2 (along with “Idiot Wind”), and “If You See Her, Say Hello” on Volume 3.
