About this lesson
DADGAD is an interesting tuning and used across a wide range of styles. It is very popular in Celtic music but can be found in rock such as a lot of Led Zeppelin's music. DADGAD tuning creates a Dsus4 chord across the open strings and because sus4 is neither major or minor, this type of tuning is called a 'modal' tuning. The included instructions will help you explain the tuning to your student and help them change to DADGAD from Standard using their ears.
