What up, I've recently been slowly learning Drifting by Andy McKee and I have like the candyrat label for quite some time and artists such as Justin King, Trace Bundy etc...so I was wondering if you guys knew any good songs in this tuning no matter how simple or complex.

Other than by the artists I just mentioned haha

Watch Over You - Alter Bridge
In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge

If they aren't that EXACT tuning, they're something extremely close, I can't remember exactly.

I can't really help with song recommendations, but I will recommend that you tune the G down to F#. Then you have Open D which is very fun to noodle around with.

Or you could tune the G down to F, which is then Open D minor. Also fun, but darker sounding.

To my knowledge, Watch Over You is in Open G and In Loving Memory is tuned down a semitone from that.

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes by CSN&Y. Wild tuning Stills did on that one. Check this out:

E = E
A drop to E
D raise to E
G drop to E
B = B
e = e

Keep the one's marked = where they are as in standard tuning. Chords are barred all the way across all 6 strings, and only one finger needed for those, or by using fingers 1 and 2 on the B and high e strings. And yes, it rings ALOT! Check out the tab in UG.
Sorry it's not in the tuning you are asking about, but it's still fun to strum away on.

If you only take it down to F# you can easily learn Jigsaw Falling Into Place by Radiohead (I guess you could do it with G too though) and that is one sweet song.

Most Irish Trad is in DADGAD as are alot've eric roche's pieces/arrangements.
#19
I heard Eric Roche tunes to that. He played in that percussive Justin King style so you might wanna check his stuff out.

^--Are you sure? I thought it was in DADGBD also.


Yeah I'm pretty sure. I play an entire version in open G. You would have to do additional fretting if you wanted to make the DADGBD tuning work. For all of the lines that contain the same riff that is played during the (for example) "spent my days with a woman unkind, smoked my stuff and drank...", you don't have to fret the 5th fret of the bottom string, you can just play the 5th string open and alternate between that and the 4th string for the bassline. And there's no part in the song where I had to substitute a bassnote another one because of the DGDGBD tuning either.
