Open D Minor Tuning (D.A.D.F.A.D)

The Open D minor tuning has five strings in common with the Open D (major), Modal D, and Pelican tunings, differing only in the third string. Like its sister tunings, Open D minor has three D strings and two A strings, leading to a wide variety of fingering variations for simple chords.

Chords from the Open D (major) chart can be used in the D minor tuning, with the understanding that notes on the third string need to be played up one fret. Similarly, chords from the Modal D chart can be used by playing up two frets, while chords from the Pelican tuning chart can be used by playing down one fret on the third string.
