Tune Your Guitar To DADGAD Tuning

Justinguitar.com's Essential Skills for Guitar Players

DADGAD tuning is very popular with the folk players and acoustic 'percussion' guitar players such as Andy McKee, Mike Dawes, Pierre Bensusan (it's sometimes called the "Bensusan tuning"), and friends. It sounds awesome and it's easy to while away many hours experimenting with this tuning. t's quite a simple tuning, you are just tuning strings 6, 2 and 1 down one tone.
