This version uses Gm and C for the "chorus" (actually just the last part of
the verse, by my reckoning).
The song is strongly in D, so you need an F#, for sure.
There is also a section with a Bb to C (the instrumental).
I just tried it with a C6/D6 (Brendan Power's Power Chromatic, a diatonic
tuning). I think it's a good fit, you can get the Bb as a draw bend, the
two chords (C and D) are in the song, you can draw bend the D, F# and A
notes for expression.
I would do a video, but I have some other things to do that might be more
Seydel will make this tuning for you, so will Brendan! The Lucky 13 is a
good instrument to retune for this tuning, but that might be more than you
are up for. I would be will to create one for you, but it ain't free.
This message is, however, and I hope it is of value to you.
PS There is another version of this song by Gregg Allman with different
chords, FYI.
