Default I Am Waiting - how on earth does he play it?

Hello all,

This is one for the guitarists amongst us, of which I am just about one...

I've just listened to Lindsey's version of 'I Am Waiting' for the first time in ages (it was in storage, along with most of my life) - and I was reminded of just how utterly wonderful it is. Such a beautiful arrangement, stunningly played. So different from the Stones' original, which is really basic in comparison.

Do any of you guitar-wielders know how he plays it? It seems to be a non-standard tuning, am I right? But which one? Any thoughts on the finger-picking?

Then there is the fact that he is able to sing while he plays it, but that's another thing altogether...

Any tips would be very welcome.

It's on the soundstage dvd, the one featuring Stevie, as a bonus track.

Here's a youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytnunZT3zJQ.

Thanks for reminding me. I must have listened to it everyday for a month back in the day.

Yes, I love the Soundstage version. He was on majorly good live form around that time, wasn't he?

On this clip you can see him tuning his acoustic before he plays - is it an open G? DADGAD? My ears aren't good enough:
