So I tuned my guitar yesterday and it sounds really cool...kinda like a dulcimer. The tuning is as follows:

from low to high: DADAAd

I doubt this is a real tuning, but I know it's the 2 notes that are used to tune a dulcimer and it sounds cool. I know this is kinda random, but I was just wondering.

Here's a sample: http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/classicrockboy/music/all/play679217

there's no OFFICIAL tuning, but E standard is what all the chord shapes were based off of when the guitar was first invented, look at all the band that use low/drop tunings, then open tunings for people to lazy to shape a chord

Open D5? Or "how the fuck am I going to play anything that requires a melody with this stupid tuning"?

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

You sure that's not DADADD?

yes...the G and B strings are the same tuning A

Quote by CoreysMonster
obviously if you can tune it, it's an actual tuning. are you just trying to show off your mp3s?

pffftt....no...why would I do that?

if you did it, it's an actual tuning...but yeah if you were advertising your mp3s, bravo. how long have you been playing? I would suggest working on your bends, as you bent out of key quite a bit and try to make your playing more "liquid" or "smooth." It's very jumpy (stop, start, stop). Other than that just keep practicing and you will keep seeing improvements

I use DADDAd on my 12 string, which has a lovely ring once you work out the weird chord shapes. The extra A would make the fingering impossible with anything but barre chords.
If you try my version, start with 0-12-11-0-12-0 and work down the scale moving the 4th string position back a fret for compensation. It would take too long to explain all the theory but if you mess around on that, you'll hit some very sweet sounds. You can barre right across too and barre just the first 3 or 4 strings for different effects. I have silenced rowdy pub jam sessions with that.
I pick up my guitar and play

I honestly don't know what you're talking about.

I made a thread once when I got thrown down a staircase, dragged through a house and dumped in a road because a kissed a guy, but that's it really. Anyone would whine if that happened to them.

And I'm not gay, I just like to sample the market.

No, YOU calmly explain yourself son.

I think it's worse. I'd rather come in and go, "Hey guyz, watz goin onz?" rather than "I so can't believe you just said that, even though I'm having trouble to analyse exactly what you said and interpret it correctly."

EDIT: That bit in bold is intentional.

EDIT2: V Exactly.
