DADGBE - Drop D

Description

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.
