Slide that position up 2, then up 2 more, and play all strings open with just that 7.

You have a simple progression that sounds amazing. Learn any song in D major and it'll sound good.

Examples:

Sugar, We're Going Down

Play your B string on the 3rd fret and tune you high E string to that note. A D. Then play your G string on the 2nd fret which is an A. Then play your B string and that A until they match and then you will have EADGAD which is not yet finished. Take your low E and D (4th string) and tune your low E down until they match to give you DADGAD. Its much easier than trying to use a tuner. Also on that last step, thats how you take yourself into Drop D tuning. Enjoy

Im sorry, that had nothing to do with your comment hahaha. I like to use regular open chords and most of them give like a funky sound to it which is good for percussive things. Like a G chord. Mess around with the fingering a bit and it sounds pretty cool

Ugh pop punk. Most retarded music genre ever.

Anyway, isn't Kashmir in DADGAD? That would be a good song to learn. Peppino D'agostino has a book or two with some beautiful songs in it that are in that tuning. Also, you can come up with a ton of cool blues and folk riffs very easily in that tuning.
