Thanks Ken. I'm off to re-tune my Dreadnaught Junior!
Rick, yes, just tune the E-string down to a D and away you go (due to less tension on the neck, this will require a slight retuning of the other strings, too). It does, however, necessitate fretting the 6-string up two frets for a G-chord or other chords that you want to play the bass root note of or its alternating bass.
Well Ken, you answered my question before I got to ask it. Drop D tuning means he dropped the sixth E string to a D? Hey, I've only played for fifty-five years and there's still so much I don't know. But watching this video up close I thought I noticed that.
John Denver - "Rocky Mountain High" is one of John's most-loved songs, and with its resonant, dropped-D tuning is a joy to play on guitar! This The Wildlife Concert version features John playing his 1994 Taylor K-15 Jumbo All-Koa 6-String.
Robin And Linda Williams - With its uplifting rhythm but wistful mood, "October Light" has become my favorite autumn-themed song. The song's lyrics evoke the splendid imagery of brilliant autumn colors in the splendidly contrasting light of an October late afternoon.
Thanks For Watching & Folk On!
