Watch the Drop D Tuning online guitar lesson by Angus Clark from Hard Rock Survival Guide: Rhythm

Let's get caught up with all the concepts we've just covered and apply them in drop D. There's a couple of things to keep in mind. One is that there's plenty of cool stuff that happens in drop D very easily and is tailored to the tuning. Second is that in practical application, you'll wind up needing to execute practically everything you already know how to play in standard, just in drop D. So definitely learn all your standard chords and so forth in drop D. I've had numerous experiences where due to production concerns, the easiest thing to do was to relearn a tune that is most easily executed in standard in drop D, just so that there's no down time getting in and out of the tune if the songs just before it and after it are both in drop D. That's a hot tip.
