  • DADGAD - alternate guitar tuning [DADGAD1.STY]

To see the DADGAD tuning in action (and also to learn the chord voicings, positions etc.) open the Guitar fretboard window and choose to display either 'G' or 'S' (Guitar or Strings) - the 2 DADGAD guitar tracks. Then, additionally, view the actual voicings in notation. This style was fairly easy to create using the Stylemaker 'Macro' feature. The ac. Bass enters at 'b'. This is a great way to learn the chord shapes for DADGAD tuning. Use this style with any tune or chord progression then check out the guitar part on the fretboard display.
