Donovan plays this song on a 12-string and the lesson is taught on a 12-string, but everything in the lesson will work on a 6-string too.
The lesson uses a solo version (on the Journey of Donovan DVD) as a template, which is in double drop D. If you want to play along with the original recording, the lesson will teach you what you need, but you need to tune to CGCFAC (double drop D a step lower).
