More DADGBD Tuning
(By Tyson)

  Hello people. I'm sorry I didn't get up a lesson last week, I was at One Festival in Memphis Tn. and I didn't have a chance to sit down and write one, but I'm here now and that's what counts... right?
  I thought that since we only touched on DADGBD tuning last time there is still more to be said.  So I will.  Be sure to read the lessons on "DADGB Tuning" and "Neck Notes" before you begin.
   As I said in the "Neck Notes" lesson, the notes in the key of G are as follows in standard tuning.
 

e-0-2-3-5-7-9-10-12-14-15-17-19-20-22-24
B-0-1-3-5-7-9-10-12-13-15-17-19-20-22-24
G-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24
D-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24
A-0-2-3-5-7-9-10-12-14-15-17-19-20-22-24
E-0-2-3-5-7-9-10-12-14-15-17-19-20-22-24

  So with DADGBD tuning they are:
 

d-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24
B-0-1-3-5-7-9-10-12-13-15-17-19-20-22-24
G-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24
D-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24
A-0-2-3-5-7-9-10-12-14-15-17-19-20-22-24
D-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24

   That in itself should be helpful for creating snappy solo's and unique chord voicings, but I won't end it there.
Here are some examples of chords you can make using that chart.  Most of them don't have real names so I just thought them up. Try them out and then make your own chords.

D7sus2   xx0212
D9           x50030
G/C         530005
Em9         x79900
C/Em7     x34200

You get the idea.  Here's the key of D in DADGBd tuning.  Make up some chords with it.  Try not to restrict yourself to the first five frets... play around on some higher frets too.
d-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24
B-0-2-3-5-7-8-10-12-14-15-17-19-20-22-24
G-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24
D-0-2-4-6-7-9-11-12-14-16-18-19-21-23-24
A-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-21-23-24
D-0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12-14-16-17-19-20-23-24

   Now let's end by popping some hermonics, (Yes, they do sound good with this tuning.)  Try this.
(MP3 example)
