 First Edition


Name: Dropped D-2 Family: Dropped Root: C Voicing: 1-5-1-4-6-9

This is a Dropped D-tuning tuned down one whole step, givning the notes C-G-C-F-A-D. It is a favorite of Geno Leonardo (of Filter). He calls the tuning "our C-Tuning", but I tend to think of various Open C-tunings when the term "C-tuning" is used. I prefer a name that tells the relation with the more familiar Dropped D-tuning. Close relatives are Dropped D-tuning, Double Dropped D and Dropped D-G.
