DADG#AD & Beyond...
This is a great template for fingerstyle and slide. I have my Taylor set up in C for lowstrung so the configuration would be: CGCF#GC. Both tunings reflect the the formula: 151#451. The key center is the 5. In the case of DADG#AD it's A Major, and G Major for the transpostion to C.
This is also user friendly for the modes contained in each. In the case of DADG#AD:
& respectively for the transposition to CGCFGC:
Also in the case of the Mixolydian mode, try raising the 6th string one whole step further to create a pedal tone for the modal rotation. So for E mixolydian try: EADG#AD thus creating an E7/11 tuning.
Some cool Dadgad/alternative altered derivatives. Bracketed entries reflect harmonic identity with the 5th string as the tonal center: All tunings for the most part are dropped or slack so as not to stress out the neck...
