This book offers a large number of essential chords and scales for the DADGAD tuning of the guitar. The material assembled here opens up a multitude of possibilities to expand and improve your playing in this unique tuning. Chords are shown in their customary harmonic contexts, instead of just listing them (as is done in most other chord-books). Skim and skip around in the book as you like, experiment, and linger where ever you find your musical inspiration. Have fun with this new, unique DADGAD book.
