Here's one I wrote myself, in Reuben tuning (f#DF#AD). It was inspired by the excellent, always on-time service provided by the Chicago Transit Authority.

You're off to a real fine start Adam. You know how to find the notes you want, and how to put the whole thing together to make a coherent piece of music; I would suggest listening carefully to BHO member Chip Arnold's music to hear how mellifluous the two finger style rhythm can be. It's good to hear someone else besides me use and appreciate open D tuning, the poor cousin of banjo tunings.

Good tune, BTW, but us Boston folks still have the definitive urban mass transit number.

i agree with the guy above me d tuning rocks ass, how ever i would strongly suggest taking you f# fifth string and cranking it up to an A gives it a better old timey feel.
