Dan Fogelberg's "The Reach" (on 12 string)
I always thought this was a pretty song, if a little over-orchestrated on the album. But I have always been afraid to learn to play it because of the alternate tuning (open D). It was never one of Fogelberg's hits, which is a good thing, because his hit songs tended to be kind of schmaltzy. I prefer his songs that tell stories.
This takes me back to my college days for sure. How old am I? Well, it was before CDs and the personal computer were common. We'll just leave it at that.
