Open D “DAD” Cigar Box Guitar Tunings and String Sizes Article – with Sound Clips!

Cigar Box Guitar StringsC. B. Gitty has published another how-to article in his series of popular cigar box guitar tunings, this one focused on the “DAD” Open D tuning. This article follows up on the last one that covered GDG, and even goes one step further by including sound clips of how each of the 4 DAD varieties sound on the same cigar box guitar.

The string sizes and combinations recommended in this article are not just theoretical exercises of what should work – Gitty actually strung a 25″ scale cigar box guitar up with each set, and then used that guitar to record the sound clip. In doing so, he made some tweaks to the string gauge lineup to make sure they were just right.

Take a look, have a listen, and consider giving this great tuning a go in one of your cigar box guitars!
