Drop D tuning is a special way to tune your guitar. You only tune one string on the guitar down, but you change the sound of the guitar dramatically. Many modern rock and metal bands are switching to Drop D to make their songs easier for them to play. How does Drop D make playing easier? That's simple. Drop D makes power chords easy to play. All you have to do is lay your finger down and play three strings on the same fret. Presto! Instant power chord. Before we start, make sure your guitar is in standard tuning.
