Drop D Tuning
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.
