Drop D Tuning


Drop D guitar tuner

If your guitar is sounding a little light, a heavy sounding Drop D tuning might be just what you need.

What is Drop D tuning?

Drop D is where you tune the 6th string E in standard tuning, down one whole step to a D. So the new tuning goes from EADGBE to DADGBE.

One finger Powerchords

Part of the appeal of Drop D is being able to play powerchords from the 6th string with just one finger. Below is a chord diagram of a one finger powerchord.
