Drop D tuning was one the first tunings I was exposed to, and I didn’t know what the hell it meant. I finally figured it out and was really happy I did because it unlocked a whole different world of creativity. It changed the game when it came to playing certain riffs and power chords! In this episode, I show you some tips and tricks to open up your knowledge of drop D tuning.

Hey Tony, i like the way you teach very much and it helps me a lot to play better on my guitar. Will it be possible that in dropped d the powerchord on the 3 fret is not a g-chord, it’s an f-chord?
I enjoy your info. Being that I have always been the front person. This helps me see what I need to do for getting out solo.
same q is 3d fret actually an f chord, as it’s 1.5 steps from the open D on that low string? Your videos are lovely and inspiring and helpful. Thank you!
yep, it’s an F (power chord – F/C/F or 1/5/1 on strings 4/5/6). Tony just misspoke, as it would be a G (note on string 6, not chord) for standard tuning.
Thanks Tony… love Drop D and really needed this! Brendan
I think I can manage the intro to Smoke on the Water with this.
That’s better than I can do…lol
