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. Taught to me in 1981 by Míchéal O'Domhnaill when he lived in Portland, dadgad guitar applies easily to fingerstyle and rhythm guitar in any style or genre, and creates a new palette in stringplay for guitar players.
