discovered it when fiddling about in double drop D
It's pretty much DADGAD with with the A raised a semitone, so DADGBbD.
Sounds fairly minor, but I have no idea what it would be called if anything.

i really dont know but i'd guess its called drop d 1 step down or something because if you notice the last two notes are lowered 1 step.

is that an open D chord? That might be it

D is D F# A.

That tuning is Drop D with the B string dropped a half step and the high E dropped a full step.

Call it what you want, that's what it is.

i'd call it DADGAD with the A raised a semitone on the 2nd highest string

DADGAD is Dsus tuning

with the Bb (vii) it would be Dadd#11min6... I think.

not sure about nomenclature.

In A, it's got a root, m2, 4, and m7.
In A#, it's got a root, M3, M6, and M7.
In D, 1, 4, 5, m6.
In G, 1, M2, m3, 5.

Hence, this tuning is a right mess. G can be scrapped from the top since an M2 and m3 just aren't a nice sight together...

I think it's probably some silly notation that means less to me than just writing down the intervals and accepting that to be the way it is.

However, I agree with TS; it is a pretty minor tuning apart from in A#. But M6 and M7 are going to sound odd together... forgive me for my negligence of what I consider pointless notation though, yeah?

Gm9 (or Gmadd9 if you prefer) is most obvious from notes only but the voicing indicates more of a Dsus4b13 kind of thing.

In which case it's probably easiest to go with this and call it Open Dsus4b6 tuning.

I don't think b13 is correct as there is no 7th. Without the 7th the voicing to me indicates that Dsus4b6 is correct.

Then again I could be wrong, it is quite unusual.
