Thread Name: Chord Req: D or DADGAD?
Subject: Chord Req: D or DADGAD?
I am once again (valiantly ) going to try to 'properly' play Dylan's Buckets of Rain, which I usually play in a standard tuning. According to the internet, this song is played in a D tuning; tho I originally thought it was played in DADGAD. Which leads me to ask two questions,if anyone knows:

Do you play it in d tuning? and where can I find the 'proper' D tuning chords for this song?

What the Hxxx is DADGAD used for then anyways? Do you use it??

Thank you,   I will now start tuning down the spare guitar (little Gibson) and give it a try.
