I know there are probably some classical guitars who used drop D, but I'm just curious who the first artists was who used it in a lot of their music.

Just drop D? No idea.

But Delta Blues guys from around 1890-1920 were using Open tunings a lot.

Idk who the first one was, but the Beatles used it in a few songs.


Damn it, beat me to it. Yes, the Beatles did it (for instance in I Want You (She's So Heavy). The first is probably some blues artist beginning of the 20th century.
I do not want to have a signature anymore.

Interesting. I find its mostly just modern music, like 90's and up that uses it(although I might just be looking at the wrong songs).

I do actually remember now, that Dear Prudence uses it, although not in the style I was thinking of

The Beatles used it, that's correct, but "I Want You" isn't in drop d.

Anywho, I don't think we will ever know who the first person to use drop d was
