Phil Ochs’ guitar tuning

I’ve noticed that his guitar is almost never in standard tuning (it’s about 3/4 steps flat). Does anyone know if he did this for a particular reason? It’s really consistent for it to be a simple mistake.

i've always assumed that either it was a recording default (he didn't always have access to the best equipment maybe?) or that he alway chose tunings that best suited his amazing voice.

chances are we'll never know
I noticed that too so I tuned mine down to see what it was like and it actually works for me sometimes.
