I think that Clinton Hammond used to have a link to DADGAD chords on his site.

If not I have a pdf I could send you.

I went to a guitar workshop at Hardraw with Duncan McFarlane (if I have the name wrong my apologies) who sent us a pdf of C modal tuning chords which I'll forward if he doesn't mind.

The Dougie McLean website has links to the tab site associated with it which has lots of practical stuff about open C in the context of Dougie's songs.

The Joni Mitchell tabs site here has so many tunings and ideas you could lose yourself for ages.

Or you could work them out and find new ones!

What is this chord - Open C tuning (CGCGCE) - 205050 - it's a current favourite of mine? (DGFGFE are the notes - Dm11 perhaps? - fingerpicked it's nice with the FE playing against each other). It works in that tuning but not in standard tuning or most others. It's the options that tunings open up to sound different rather than the ability to play standard chords that is the point of them isn't it - or I may have missed the point as usual?

Y're Welcome! I have experimented with many alternate tunings (eg. Drop D, Open G, DADGAD, etc,). One I used for a while was EADEAE or
Pipe Tuning. I continued my quest for more variables and checked out Open D. I discovered that playing in "Open D tuning" was much more than just barring across the frets. I now use it extensively. You'll discover for yourselves which strings to include with various chords. What's amazing about this tuning, is its simple playability. Its great for celtic, country, rock, and the blues. Utilizing alternate bass licks and melody lines is a breeze.
Use my chord charts! Try it! Hope you like it! Remember to share!

Harley, Thanks for the charts especially the EADEAE. I've fooled with that tuning awhile, and had some of the chords worked out well enough for playing solo, but not well enough to play along with others on the fly. You made things much easier for me. The charts will go to the front of my working songbook.

There is one little amendment you might want to make which is that the relative minor in key of E is C#m rather than Cm

Harley, it looks like it's a really nice chords chart, but this is at least the third thread you've started to promote your Website. I've combined the three I've found.
In general, you're not allowed more than one thread for such things. Instead of starting a new thread, use the Filter to find the old one, and just post a message with the word "refresh" in the text body. That will put the thread on the Forum Menu for another 24 hours (threads stay on the menu for 24 hours after the most recent post).

No problem Joe, sorry about the duplicate threads. I really appreciate the fact I could start this thread without having to sign up etc. These days I am trying to keep my time spent at the computer to a minimum... no time to converse with various forums.
I had come across an interesting banjo player/teacher on line, named Patrick Costello who unknowingly, inspired me to share what I could.
It's true, Michaelr, there is a fine line between sharing and such, but being the self-promoter that I am, I couldn't help but offer my other services (Portrait Art) as well. Not too much to ask, I hope.
Anyway, this is the end of this thread. The word is out about these charts...enough said.

I've always understood that 'Nashville' tuning was just the six octave strings from a 12 string. Thats what I use and is good with second guitar with heavy bass. If that's not what it's called try it anyway.

Handy to have those. Thanks George and thanks Harley.

Only thing is though, with DADGAD anyway for Irish music, the assumption that it's full chords that are needed (eg A major or A minor) doesn't necessarily apply. Dyads, where the third note is missing, so that the chord is neither major or minor (aka "power chords" in some musical contexts), are likely to be more what's wanted.

Dang, but far be it for me to criticize. I should come up with something as handy and useful as your charts. However, in the DADGAD section you list chords under the ÒKey of D7Ó. WouldnÕt ÒD MixolydianÓ be closer to the truth?

When I was about 9 years of age, I was able to convince my dad to buy me a used Harmony guitar from a pawn shop. I think he paid $10 for it. It was probably worth $5. It played like a hollow plank with strings, and went out of tune once past the first position. But, it was my first and it served me well enough as a learning instrument. What brings me to this thread is that my parents weren't going to pay for lessons, unless I wanted piano. I didn't. We lived six miles from town on a ranch. So, I made up my own tuning and basic chords, having no one to show me otherwise. I played with those basics, somewhat enhanced, all the way through high school, albeit with a somewhat improved Stella. One night, I was noodling around in the coffee house with a couple of friends when the resident folk guru came over and asked to see my guitar. He told me I was using an open D tuning. I had to go back and relearn almost from scratch, not realizing that this open tuning had its own utility.

Another nice chord generator. There are dozens out there.

When I was learning various open tunings, I needed chord charts displaying useful chords (eg. by Key) so that I could play any complete song not just diiplaying one chord at a time. I discovered there are not many useful chord charts available on the net, so I created my own charts.
Ok I admit I'm trying to promote them here. Are you listening? Try Them! (Birdman Blue gets it!)

EADEAE is called "Pipe tuning"? I've been using that one for a while and I had no idea. I just knew it was to the key of A as DADGAD is to D.

Another one I use often is the crossnote tuning (open Em) EBEGBE. I call it EebeeJeebee tuning.
