Slaid Cleaves

Hi Slaid, I'm a big fan from all the way up in Prince Edward Island, Canada (Where Sandy Gray is from)!! I've learned a few of your songs and am wondering if you can gell me what key you play Drinkin' Days and Sinner's Prayer in, please? I am planning on learning them next as I have been playing your Wishbones CD non-stop for a month now!!! Can't wait fo the new album!!! Cheers, Brian

Hey Brian from PEI,

Drinkin' Days is in E. I use a capo on the 2nd fret, but leave the big E string open. That way you can play it using open chords: D, G and A. Sinner's Prayer is in Cm. Again, I use a capo on the 3rd fret so I can play the open chords (never did get strong on bar chords): Am, Dm, E. Good luck!
