another is DGDGAD sometimes called Gsus2 or G6 tuning. I learned it from a Peppino D'Agostino 'Walk Away Renee' tutorial in FingerStyle Guitar magazine.

Here's a chord chart for it. Wish i had seen this 10 years ago :)

An here's the tune.

he forces himself to sing...:)

Comment by Robert Williamson yesterday

tried DADGAD... but Ive been spoiled by Double-Dropped D... DADGBD

Comment by Derick Chatfield yesterday

Good luck with the, PB 13's and be careful.
I have just moved down from 12's to 11's, maybe my age or something

Comment by Elton Bloye yesterday

Yeh, I like DADGAD. Like all of you, haven't a clue, but I am amusing myself. Derick, glad the Strings & Beyond purchase went well. I was just waiting for someone else to try first, but i think I'll order a few sets the next time they have a

special. I am about to experiment with PB 13's tonight - First time in many years -  Wish me luck!  

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen yesterday

Jud --- I have my old 1975 Norman B20 tuned to DADGAD to try and get into it a bit and learn it, but the times are few and far between that I try it. Do you (or does anyone else) know of any resources like the "Orkney Tuning" video series you posted a few months ago? I was going to retune the Norman to Orkney the other night but ran out of time.

Comment by Derick Chatfield yesterday

Hi Jud
The quick answer is yes.
Also DADF#AD tuning very close.
I like the sound for noodling, but not really to sure what I am doing, but will keep plodding on and hope it all falls in to place.
Would recommend all to give it a try as a real pleasant change from standard tuning.

Comment by FloridaGull yesterday

I think I am ruined for alternate tunings - my first instrument (viola) didn't allow for that (at least, Mrs. Lang didn't seem to like it...) - and the piano requires a lot of effort to re-tune...  :)

Anyway, at least for now I'm sticking with the "standard" tuning...  8-)

Comment by Jud Hair yesterday

Any of you Gulls enjoy playing in DADGAD tuning?  

I've been noodling around in it for a few weeks now and I'm really enjoying the rich, lush chord sounds you can get with a minimum of effort.  

For the most part, I don't know exactly what chords I'm playing, but I know that they sound GREAT and most are accomplished with only one or two fingers!

Eats lots of turkey and snatched some git playing time between turkey.
