Think I agree with @madmodmcd - would love to hear a slower version too. It’s inspired me to note it down as a dreamer song for myself in the future - there would be some real stretch chord changes in there, whilst maintaining tempo.
@pamelak855 Thanks. I love this song so have looked into it. In standard tuning the chords can be played in D but Nick Drake’s recording is slightly out of tune; somewhat odd as there is a piano in it. I can get it to work with D A G Em but sounds nothing like yours. Well done. Any more Nick Drake please?
Edit: PS I used software to retune it by 3/4 step to get the original in D and to play along
@pamelak855 OK Please excuse my utter ignorance in this as I know nothing of open tunings and have enough difficulty finding the notes in standard tuning. So please indulge me but what I don’t get is why tune the guitar to a specific tuning and then use a capo? I see that’s how it is in examples of tabs and covers and tutorials on YouTube. But having listened to it, is it not more likely that Nick Drake played this in an open D tuning without a capo?
I get where your thoughts are but this open c pattern isn’t the same as open d.
Drake used this pattern on a number of songs- it allowed for very simple cords and cord changes with a very melodic sound
