"When I first heard Davy he was sitting in playing blues with John Mayall and he was great. He was playing on an old Gibson J-50 with a DeArmond pickup like I used to use, and instead of just chunking along doing those sort of Jimmy Reid lines, he was playing 6ths and 10ths, but still great blues. It was just a different fingerstyle approach and it was lovely. It was roundabout that time that he came back from ten years in Morocco and he had the DADGAD tuning and I was there when he played it for the first time in public and it was just a big breakthrough. That’s what everyone got hold of to accompany the old songs with for a while. Then that tuning spawned other tunings that were easier to sing along with because DADGAD’s pretty high."
