DADGAD Modal D guitar tuning, chords & scales 432htz

Description

The DADGAD tuning was used extensively by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin and The Yardbirds in the late 60s and 70s. While with The Yardbirds Page recorded an instrumental entitled White Summer itself inspired by the first recorded DADGAD tune Davey Graham\'s arrangement of the traditional Irish tune She Moved Through the Fair . On Led Zeppelin s eponymous first album Led Zeppelin he used this guitar tuning to perform Black Mountain Side though he detuned the entire guitar by one-half a step for the recording so it was really D?-A?-D?-G?-A?-D? \(where the ? denotes a flattened note\)--the piece which was strongly influenced by Bert Jansch s earlier arrangement of a traditional Irish song called Blackwater Side \(though Jansch actually used drop D tuning\). Page later revisited the DADGAD tuning for the song Kashmir which appeared on the band s sixth album Physical Graffiti.
