Been trying  to get into this alternate tuning a little bit lately and have noticed very few, if any Larrivees in the YT vids featuring this tuning - I wonder why this is? My L-05 sounds great tuned this way. Mostly it's Lowdens, McIlroys, Taylors and a few Martins. - where're the Larrivees?

The other day I decided to be extra nice to the wife and changed the strings on her OM-03 for her.

When I was done I may have left it in DADGAD though.

Here's a favorite of mine.
Waltzing Matilda by Larry Pattis on his Larrivee parlor. [DADGAD]
I always thought that parlors seem to record quite well (to my ear).
You decide.

I don't know why that is. DADGAD is a great tuning for playing many Celtic and Led Zeppelin songs. If you drop the third string another half step then you have open D and can play slide guitar. I call it the next "gateway tuning" behind drop D tuning. It's all about balancing the tension on the neck though, and I just discovered that a tuning machine upgrade makes a certain amount of sense after a while.
