I think on the original recording it was in the key of E so in DADGAD is it capo second fret to play along with it?

I've been working on this song, I love songs that sound cool but aren't really too difficult - or at least not too difficult to learn! Bonus when the arrangement makes the song singable too. Another week or so I should be able to play the riffs at speed.

DarrellW, if you're still following this post and didn't get your question answered yet, then yes if you want to play it in E and you're tuned to dadgad you need a capo on 2.

Thanks, I guessed that - fortunately my wife is better at music theory than I am, she sings classical music!
I've been having a bit of a go at this and Shape of you, my grand daughter loves to sing both of them and as she is only 4 years old how could I not? :) :) :)
