Drop D Tuning is great for getting really deep, bassy riffs and chords on your guitar and it’s a tuning that you will find in a wide range of styles. Whether you fancy picking some old folk and country, or thrashing out some seriously heavy power chords, this lesson will be well worth a watch.
Switching your guitar to drop D tuning couldn’t be easier; all that is required is that you drop your low E down a whole step (the equivalent of two frets) to a D. Now you have a nice low 6th string on your guitar, but this means the notes on this string have moved, and the note relationships to the other strings will have also changed.
The advantage here is that we can get some really interesting chord shapes, and with the way the notes are spaced out, drop D tuning can produce its own unique sound.
