I'm tuning an acoustic which has good intonation to a DADGAD tuning. Placing the capo on the third fret. When played open the bottom D (E) string plays a perfect F, which it should, but when fretted on the 8th fret, where it should give a nice B flat, its sharp. Is this an intonation issue? I'm using a normal set of EADGBE strings - will a set of DADGAD's help?

If you think it maybe the intonation, why not check it?

Get your tuner out, fret the 12th, and see how far out it is. If it's hideously sharp, then it could be throwing frets as far as the 8th off, in theory.

They make strings specifically for DADGAD?
