Tangled up in Blue - chords, tab and comments
This song is first track on Dylan's 1975 album "Blood on the Tracks" - in my opinion Dylans's best production ever, which is not peanuts. It is almost entirely recorded D open tuning. Playing nylon string, this trick sounds disgusting. Thus, this is my humble transition and conversion.
It's told that the song was written after Dylan listening to Joni Mitchells "Blue" album throughout a weekend. May be so. It was also written at the time he divorced Sara. Various affairs from the past may have entangled.
