    Looking for The Musidal Box - Rutherford 12 String Transcription - heeeeelp me!

    Does anyone have an accurate, i.e., not Guitar Pro, Jellynote, or other online tab. Not that there is anything wrong with most online tabs; however, none have Rutherford's correct tuning.

    I know that Mike doesn't even remember his actual "F# tuning he used on either Nursery Cryme or Live or Seconds Out, since they are slightly different, but any help would be appreciate. If there are any transcribers out there, I will gladly pay to play.

    Thanks,
    Adinfinitum

    This is from a post of mine from a few years back when Mike Rutherford's book came out.

    *******

    Found these on another Genesis site:

    Cinema Show: Acoustic 12-string tuning in the first half only - the second half is in standard tuning.

    1st & 2nd strings: E (unison)
    3rd & 4th strings: B (unison)
    5th string: G
    6th string: down to E
    7th string: D
    8th string: down to A
    9th & 10th strings: down to G (+ octave)
    11th & 12th strings: down to D (+ octave)

    Musical Box: Electric 12 string

    1st & 2nd strings: F# (unison)
    3rd & 4th strings: F# (unison)
    5th & 6th strings: F# (+octave)
    7th & 8th strings: D (+octave)
    9th & 10th strings: A (+octave)
    11th & 12th strings: E (+octave)

    It's been suggested that the 3rd & 4th strings could also be tuned to C#.

    Turn It On Again:

    1st string: E
    2nd string: A
    3rd string: F#
    4th string: D
    5th string: B
    6th string: E

    More Fool Me:

    This is in some kind of open Eb tuning, possibly:

    1st string: Eb
    2nd string: Bb
    3rd string: G
    4th string: Eb
    5th string: Bb
    6th string: Eb

    Harlequin:

    Open G tuning:

    1st string: D
    2nd string: B
    3rd string: G
    4th string: D
    5th string: B
    6th string: D

    Dance on the Volcano, Los Endos, Squonk, Home by the Sea (and others):

    Dropped D tuning (top Es tuned down to D with all other strings as standard)

    In The Rapids/ It: (12 string)

    These are probably in standard tuning, though the bottom E may be tuned down to D. An alternative suggestion that may make them easier to play is:

    1st string: E
    2nd string: B
    3rd string: F#
    4th string: C#
    5th string: A
    6th string: D

    Someone else noted that Fly on a Windshield has an alternate tuning for the RICK 12 string.... the G strings are tuned up to A's. The rest of the tuning is standard.
