DDDDDD - Ostrich

Description

Ostrich guitar is an alternative guitar tuning in which all the guitar strings are tuned to the same pitch class often D\, but A#, F and B have also been noted. The term was coined by The Velvet Underground\'s Lou Reed after the pre–Velvet Underground song "The Ostrich" by Lou Reed and The Primitives\, on which this tuning was first used.[3] Reed later applied it on the 1967 album The Velvet Underground & Nico on the songs "Venus in Furs" and "All Tomorrow\'s Parties".
