DADGAD Tuning With John Smith

For years, singer-songwriter and guitarist John Smith has been one of our favorite musicians to watch. To celebrate his appearance in the new, Fretboard Journal #46, we unearthed this previously unpublished footage of him explaining his love for DADGAD, his tips for players wanting to attempt the tuning and even some of his favorite DADGAD tunes from other artists.

John’s 2020 album, Live in Chester, is now available.
