Subject: RE: Drop-D; wrong all these years?
Thanks all. The concensus seems to be what I thought. I guess you could call KW's tuning name a technically correct description, but in standard parlance it should be called something else. Maybe a "high drop-D" or something like that.

Amos -- that's an open D, very common for slide guitar players particularly electric players. It wasElmore James's favorite a great tuning.

cheers
