Double Dropped Guitar Tunings


Double dropped guitar tuning is similar to dropped tunning except that the 1st string is now also dropped one whole step. So for the standard tuning to be double dropped, both high and low E strings will be tuned down to a D note thus having (D-A-D-G-B-D), this is commonly known as a double drop D tuning.
 
A famous artist that makes effective use of this tuning is Neil Young and in his song entitled Cinnamon Girl.
