Subject: RE: Help: Guitar tuning DAGDAD
DADGAD is a most useful tuning used by many professional guitar players. Pierre Bensusan uses it exclusively. Tony McManus uses it extensively among many other tunings. There are many sources for this tuning. These two chaps have tuition videos on the Stefan Grossman web site. There playing is awesome. John Sherman has a few CD's and books that are good starting point if you want to learn a few finger picking tunes in DADGAD. Martin Solomon has also a book /CD package on this with some wonderful arraignments. I play mostly in this tuning, finger picking, and for backing in a session. It provides a beautiful drone behind the session playing and really fills out the music. Do a google search on these artists. I recently Bought a Bouzouki GDAD and I am looking for info sources, Perhaps we can swap notes ?
