In this guitar lesson, you will learn how the Drop D tuning works and what you need to do to tune your guitar this way.

Drop D Tuning

Drop D is one of the simplest guitar tunings out there, when your guitar is in Drop D you can easily form a power chord by barring your finger across the fattest 3 strings of any fret. This can be shifted around rather quickly up and down the fretboard always forming a power chord.

The only difference in Drop D from Standard is the fattest string is tuned down a whole tone to a D rather than an E. Learn from these instructions and you’ll always be able to switch into Drop D on the fly.
