Subject: RE: Tune Req: Do you use D A D G A D?
I use DADGAD a lot of the time - though like 'meself' I retune to standard for American old-time sessions. But chords in standard tuning can add too much harmonic information to modal tunes, hence DADGAD for English folk stuff.
The key to stop it getting boring is not to play in D all the time. It works really well in G; Em, Bm and A also work fine.
