ddw in windsor DADGAD (65* d) RE: DADGAD 02 Mar 99


Thanx. I've been out of the music scene since about 1974, probably spending less than 12 hours with my guitar until about a year ago when I got involved with a local folk club. I had encountered the tuning only once when I borrowed a guitar from another club member for a couple of tunes and she warned me it was in DADGAD. I just retuned it to standard and didn't really think about it much until this thread showed up.

Just as an aside, I noticed on some of his liner notes that Tom Rush plays in a C tuning on some of his songs, but I didn't know exactly what he was doing, so I made up a C tuning that I think sounds pretty good. It's CGCGCC, with the E note played by bottlenecking to the 4th on the #1 string. Fool around with that a while and let me know what you think.
