DADGBD - Double Drop D

Description

Also known simply as double drop D is an alternative guitar tuning: E strings are tuned down (dropped) one whole step (2 frets) to D rather than E as in standard tuning (EADGBE). The main use for double dropped d is so guitarists can play 5th chords with one finger on the bass strings and play the treble side of a barré chord. A well-known recording that makes effective use of this tuning is Cinnamon Girl by Neil Young and I Hate California by Jonathan Coulton.
