Just curious if anyone knows whether or not .38 Special specifically used alternative tunings? I was checking out "Like No Other Night" and it seems they may be dropped a half step or more. Anyone have any knowledge?

Thanks.

2020 Ibanez RG421 w/ Evertune bridge, 2010 Ibanez SA-120 (modded with locking tuners and Seymour Duncan pickups), 2018 Epiphone Les Paul Special, 2019 Yamaha Pacifica 112J, along with several acoustic guitars.

2008 Line 6 POD 2.0, Boss Katana Air, Boss Katana MkII 50-watt.

N-Track 9.1 Digital Audio Workstation software, Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio Gen 3.

Mainly into blues and southern rock, but checking out all styles on GuitarTricks.

Nope just regular tuning, the intro plays triads on the 2nd 3rd and 4th string arpeggio style beginning with the highest string ( small tip; first triad based on E style bar chord from C, 8th fret. rest of song powerchords A style first then E style and 2 open chords, E and A

Pretty basic song.
