The dadgad guitar tuning originated in North Africa, and legend has it that in the 1960's Davy Graham, British folk guitarist brought dadgad tuning back from Tangier, Morocco, and drew Irish guitarists like Mícheál O'Domhnaill (Bothy Band, Nightnoise, Relativity), Arty McGlynn (Patrick Street, DeDannan, Four Men and A Dog, Van Morrison) and Pierre Bensusan to create a new sound to traditional Irish, Folk-Rock and contemporary fingerstyle guitar.
Míchéal O'Domhnaill (1951-2006) mentored my playing during his residency in Portland, Oregon (1981-1994), and led me through the chords, sounds and secrets of DADGAD guitar. This one-take DADGAD Boot Camp series allows me to reflect, describe and share dadgad following the trails that my senses and neural tracker followed to find my way and build a warm and wonderful home to play music in all styles in DADGAD tuning in the oral tradition..
