I have a question when using DADGAD tuning. What scale can you use for this tuning? Can I just pick a scale and play it like it is layed out only that would be in standard tuning so do I take the notes on the low E, B, and high E strings up two frets? The same for chords too, would they be the same except I have to move my finger positions if they are over the E,B, or e strings?

Help would very appreciated...
cheers betch
Yes, scales and chords still are made of the same notes, so you have different shapes to get those same notes. The cool thing is that with this tuning you get chords that you dont normally have due to the reaching.

For some added fun, try DADFAD, Open D Minor tuning. When you strum the guitar with all open strings, its a Dmin.
