Open G tuning for guitar

Not Rated Yet

The open G tuning for guitar is an alternative tuning for guitar where the six open strings of the guitar (lowest to highest) are tuned to the following notes: D, G, D, G, B, D.

Open G tuning is called so as the notes G, B, D are the notes of the G major chord and thus the G major chord can be played using open strings only.

The most common guitar tuning is EADGBE (lowest to highest). One can obtain the open D tuning from the standard tuning by: 1) dropping in the lowest guitar string two semitones from E to D; 2) dropping the fifth string (highest to lowest) two semitones from A to G; and 3) dropping the first guitar string two semitones from E to D.
