Hello Barry,
I thought you were working in open G. That is why I suggested the chord page. I am not trying to sell you another tuning. I play using DADf# but only the lower three strings on a 3 string (DAD). I will be posting a series of lessons soon for playing chords on 3 string tuned ADf#. So, you will find this very applicable with a D(ADf#) tuning on a 4 string. Sorry for any confusion.
