Thread Name: Drop-D; wrong all these years?
Subject: RE: Drop-D; wrong all these years?
Well danged. I thought that dropping both the 1st and 6th strings down to a D was a "D model". Am I wrong? I thought that dropped D was just droppin' the 1st to D.

Either way, I play "Rollin' and Tumblin'" in what I have thought was a D model (1st and 6th down to D). I love this tuning, especially since ya bring the 5th down and you're in G and can do some bottleneck. Then capo up to the 2nd and bottle neck in A...

If this ain't D model, someone please tell me and tell me how to tune to get D model. But don't get too technical.
