I recently started experimenting with Dropped D tuning (DADGBe). And I was wondering, does anyone have any cool chord "shapes" that can be played up and down the fret board in this tuning? Or just cool chords in general for Dropped D.

Thanks so much!

Drop D's only purpose, IMO, is to allow easier power chording. Yea, you get two extra semitones down, but that isn't all that big of a deal.

Um, just use any chord shapes you'd use in standard tuning...just transpose any notes on the bottom string up 2 frets.

A chord is a chord is a chord...no matter what tuning you're in. The notes might move dependent on tuning, and therefore you'll have to alter fingerings but ultimately A7 is A7 no matter how it's fingered as long as the correct notes are present.
