Watch the SECTION 3: Open D Tuning online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Slide Guitar Power

All of the chord forms and scale patterns that were used for the open E tuning will be identical when tuned to open D, but they will just sound one whole step lower than the open E tuning. Johnny Winter used this tuning for the recording of his tour de force cover version fo Bob Dylan's, "Highway 61 Revisited," which Johnny cut for his seminal Second Winter album. Our playing example will be played in this style over a similar backing track.
