DADGAD or Dropped D?
I keep going back and forth between these two tunings. I cant decide which to use for backup.
I like DADGAD due to the easy modal chord voicings. However, sometimes certain chord changes arnt as crisp as i would like them to be. Things sometimes get lost in this big mud due to the open strings ringing along. Ascending/decending bass lines are easily availabe in dadgad.
Drop D is fun, i like the John Doyle stye backup. My chords tend to contain more thirds in this tuning, but the chord changes sound crisper to me.
