Starting from the 6th string to the 1st string. Hit D string & E string together – D tune your E until it matches your open D.
Tuning note: Its important to go below the note and tune back up.
Take the B string and tune it to an A.
This is an awesome tuning to strum to, as well as adding new sound to a song when playing in DADGAD when the worship leader plays a song in D.
In this tuning you really only need to be putting 2 fingers down.
JP prefers to play without the pick for this tuning. He just uses thumb, 1 and two to stum. The thumb always goes down, the one and the two alternate. Every once in awhile, he goes to the 4.
Double-stop – using two fingers to pluck at the same time.
Open tuning is a great way to get into picking patterns.
