How to tune to your guitar to DADGAD tuning

If you are new to open tuning a guitar

 Open Tuning = tune the guitar differently

DADGAD = tune your your lowest bass string to D

Your A string stays the same

Your D string stays the same

Your G string stays the same

Your B string drops down to A

And your high E string drops to D

This is a very good tuning to start with and there are a number of resources available.

 I have TAB and dots in DADGAD at www.the-guitarplayer.com/
