Thread Name: OPEN D TUNING
Subject: RE: OPEN D TUNING
It may be that all they want you to do to get "open D" is to lower your lowest string, an E string, to the note D so that you can have a nice low note in your G,D, and Bm chords. In this case, you will leave the other strings alone and play familiar chords on them.

You will not be able to use your lowest string with chords such as A, E, and C.
