Chris Amos DADGAD_ what are the basics? (31) RE: DADGAD_ what are the basics? 23 Feb 03


Hi

Legend has it that this tuning was devised by the great guitarist Davie Grahame, to enable him to play with North African musicians.

You certainly can have some fun with it. Try picking out tunes, either on single strings or as octave pairs and use the other strings to add in chords or act as "drones"

Also try DADEAD, chords work wonderfully in that.

Chris
