Thanks Derek it's such a versatile tuning when you want to play with backing tracks in many different Keys , I also used many different open tunings DGGD and many others love to play power chords on 3 and four strings .

Informative and entertaining lesson James. Yup DGBE is my main 4 tuning too, and I like to keep one in DGGD and sometimes banjo DGBD.
