Subject: RE: Tune Req: Do you use D A D G A D?
All a matter of taste, of course. I played guitar in an English dance band for two decades and always preferred to accompany major tunes in DADGAD, both for the low D on the bottom string and the option of missing out the 3rds in the chords. But that's just the sound I like. I routinely take the 3rds out of my melodeon basses as well.
