I think Keith changed guitars pretty often. He might have played a black Les Paul Custom in standard tuning for some shows on that tour, but I've seen lots of different pics of him with different guitars from that tour. Regardless of which guitars he used, here's the tunings he would have used.....(all open G tunings refer to the 5 string version).......

BS- open G
GS- standard (I'm pretty sure he always did this live in standard)
Happy- open G, capoed at 4th
TD- open G, capoed at 4th
Star Star- standard
Mr. D- standard
Heartbreaker- standard
Angie- standard
YCAGWYW- open G, capoed at 5th
MR- standard, capoed at 7th
HTW- open G
ADTL- open G
RTJ- open G, capoed at 4th
JJF- open G, capoed at 4th
SFM- open G, capoed at 4th

.....Keith usually kept the same guitar for the last 3 songs...they did them all in the same key although that wasn't the original key of the studio versions in some cases.....this was probably done so they could charge through the final three songs without having to stop and change guitars and lose momentum.....

Is it possible that he played the Newman-Jones guitar also for the song Honky Tonk Women. I have saw a photo of Mick and Keith, sharing the same microphone and Keith play with the Newman-jones guitar without a capo. I think the photo is from the rotterdam gig

Mathijs -- When you say you've seen "footage" of all those songs except Dancing With Mr Dr, do you mean you've seen video recordings of 'em? Can you tell us from where and what kinds of recordings? I'm very curious about film from the '73 tour ... have barely seen anything. That Old Grey Whistle Test video of Street Fighting Man must be the only one I've found.

There are some super-8 footage of the German 73 shows. The sound is overdubbed...it doesn't match the pictures on the version I've got, but maybe there's better sound->pictures of this footage around.

Essen, Cologne, and Mannheim:

The only decent '73 item I am aware of is the Frankfurt SFM, which appeared on the OGWT though I think other shows were professionally recorded. Someone on this board either had seen or knew of Vienna 73 on video, but the owner isn't sharing presumably because he got it from the band.

There's 8 mm video footage quite readilly available in tape trading circles from at least Vienna, Mannheim, Essen, Frankfurt, Cologne, Wembley 9, Brussels 17 first and Munich. Also, for some reason the Dutch photographer Laurens van Houten was granted access to all Rotterdam shows, and there's truly an abundance of pictures from these shows. For most pictures it is not hard to guess the song that is played.

Thanks for the information! I've been searching for '73 DVDs on various torrent sites for years now without any luck. Anyone have any of it at hand?
