I dunno which open tuning Roy uses but you'll a lot of stuff is
in some open tuning or other - as Gordon's naming of chords like
G1 and Bm1 suggests.
I play a lot of stuff in open E tuning - just crank the 3rd, 4th
and 5th strings up so that when you hit them you get the E chord
without holding down any strings. I find it's a great tuning for
a lot of old Joni and Beatles songs.
Here's an attempt at Highways Blues, which, like a lot of Harper
songs, requires very few chords.
