DADGBE: Drop D

Drop D tuning is frequently used in heavy metal as guitarists in that style often need extremely fast transitions between power chords. However the tuning has also been used in many other styles of music including blues country folk and classical. Due to its similarity to standard tuning drop D is recognised as a useful introduction to alternative tunings leading logically to an exploration of DADGAD open D and drop D drop G (in which both the 5th and 6th strings are dropped a tone) tunings.

  • *Chordmaps are an amalgamation of chords and scales. Each chord map can yield sometimes 5 chord shapes in its given key. Chords are made up of 2+ notes in the respective scale. EADGBE has evolved to provide a good compromise between simple fingering for many chords and the ability to play common scales with minimal left hand movement giving highly responsive chords and well renowned chord shapes. Alternate tunings have wider fret spans making normal chords difficult to reach. That’s not to say chords map don’t have good chords. With a little effort some original and strikingly beautiful chords can be found in Chord Maps.
