I've been having a great time playing Buckets of Rain for small venues and friends, giving it a sort of Missisppi John Hurt guitar treatment.

But I'd like to play it in the open tuning that I believe Dylan
wrote it in. I read that Open Tuning in E is:

E B E G B E

I've ALSO read that it's
E B E G# B E

Anyone know? Would I be playing it correctly in E?? Any suggestions are appreciated, I'm never great at doing exact transcriptions of songs. n this case, I'd like to mimic the exact chords, tho usually I don't mind doing my own musical 'interpretations' (People sometimes mistake this for creativity, and I am loathe to tell them otherwise)

If it is Open E, the correct tuning is EBEG#BE The other would be open E minor.

Thanks. Does anyone else play this song, and know the 'open chords'?

Don't play the song myself. There are websites with chord shapes for all sorts of tunings. Also check out open D (E is a one step higher variant, but the shapes are the same).

lefthanded guitar: if it sounds good to you, it's right.

If you go to Dylan Chords site and go to the Alphabetical list and you'll find a good tab for it played in open D (kinder on your guitar) or open E

I like to play it in open D. You can see a couple of videos of people playing it if you search on YouTube.
