I usually tune one of my guitars, bottom strings so it seems more like a bass. I find it plays lead guitar more easily. You just change the way A and D chords are played. I know drop C tuing is opular for slash chords.

When I play "Cinnamon Girl" I usually tune both E strings ( 1 and 6 ) to D , to use the same tuning as Neil Young does.

He is a good songwriter, and not a jerk online making fun of a professional musician.

The saying actually goes : "couldn't _____ his way out of a wet
paper bag". It was originally used to describe fighters who "couldn't
punch their way out of a wet paper bag". But, I think that taking into
consideration the source of this particularly bungled reference, the
Burger King bag is understandable. I mean, you go with what you
know, right?

Yes, what I also know is the term colloquialism. Terms used in
unconstrained conversations, not formal. Most are
regional but can be contorted to just about any use.

That being said, my comment was more of a hyperbole, in either
case both are correct.

BTW, hiding your name doesnt hide the fact you are f---ing
moron.

Why dont you go spend some more time looking up irrelevant
and abstract information on the web. Because I seriously doubt
you could play your way out of my ball sack.

Bitch.

No not my favorite for solos but with that song he does bring the rock. For all that Neil has gone through health wise and still perform on what I feel borrowed time, he does well.

I myself have never been a fan of his but having started to visit what he offered for music during the 60's - the years I avoided - I am trying to incorporate and understand what Neil was all about.,

Gotta agree there. Not the best vocalist, but a good writer. He did blend well with CSN. Not MY ideal lead guitarist, but that's a matter of one's opinion.

Ya I agree with your take on the solo plus, the sound on that links not too good, its hard to hear the solo
Young’s playing occupies two ends of the spectrum, and while his acoustic work is delicate and warm, it’s his raggedy, raucous electric playing that shines most.
Plugged in, the sloppy Young plays with a feverish urgency and conveys more emotion through his fingers than any shredder.
He also earns bonus points for playing the greatest one-note solo ever on 'Cinnamon Girl.'
He's more a true musical artist than just a guitar player.

Neil Young! The "Godfather of Grunge"

Which, is pretty spot-on, if you ask me.

Was he a hippie? Yeah, I wouldn't doubt it. LOL

The "Godfather of Grunge" is starting to look like a grungy old man. I liked his early stuff but my interest waned as he became more and more pontiferous. Why do these old men act like they're younger the older and older they get?

Was never a big fan of Young, HOWEVER, he's a very good songwriter, and for some reason, I really love the heavy-rocking-version of "Hey, Hey, My, My" (Into the Black). It's a pretty kickin' tune!

I thought he was a pretty nice fit with CSN, and I like his album "Harvest Moon". Decent album.
