Open D minor tuning has one key difference between normal open D tuning: the G string is tuned to an F instead of an F sharp. Otherwise, the tuning is the same.
Once you get into open D minor tuning, you’re going to learn how to play a D minor scale, create chord shapes, and even improvise over the key of D minor. It’s tons of fun playing in this open tuning and can provide haunting tones that are perfect for the Halloween season!
In addition to talking about open D minor tuning, this week’s Tuesday TAC Guitar Lick Challenge will utilize an open D minor tuning. So, if you’re looking for a slick lick to throw into your D minor playing, be sure to check out the challenge this week!
