Subject: RE: Tune Req: Do you use D A D G A D?
the drone effect at the bass end is similar to that used by pipes players
True, but you can also use the higher-pitched strings as drones. For instance, if accompanying a modal tune in A with DADGAD, there's a nice combination of shapes on the middle strings around frets 9-7-5 that leaves the 2nd string open and droning on A throughout.
