Thread Name: OPEN D TUNING
Subject: RE: OPEN D TUNING
more threads like this would be handy. I know a bunch of open tunings over the past 30 years and also for instance if I capo up to the fourth fret but dont capo the sixth string leave it open, you need a certain capo for that and play in c chord formation it is really the key of E with a nice low E. I came upon D A D F# A D back in the 70s and had no use for it , than last summer i was surfing a Dylan guitar site and found a version of Simple Twist of fate where you fret the fifth string and the fifth fret and fourth string at fourthe fret and drop fifthe to fourth and keep dropping towards nut and works really well, Its the tuning I believe Bob used on the cut. Now I have a place to go with this tuning ,wish i could write tab on this site but cantl. improvise good luck ---Rastaaaaaa (Pat)
