4.0 out of 5 stars Essentially a chord book, 24 Mar 2009
A. J. Sturgess "Alan Sturgess" (UK) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Dead Good Dadgad Book (Spiral-bound)
This book is essentially a small-format chord book with additional notes about the pros and cons of this wonderful tuning. There are also tips about chord progressions, picked progressions, drone sounds, ornamentation and the tricky topic of using capos to change key (not always easy with DADGAD).

But beyond those short sections, the rest is a chord book. It's main advantage is that it's small, uncluttered with unnecessary text and light enough for a guitar case or gig bag.

If you're looking for a DADGAD guide, I'd recommend 'Understanding DADGAD For Fingerstyle Guitar' by Doug Young which also comes with a CD. This book is listed on the Amazon website and is a very useful buy.

If you end up looking for a versatile and easy-to-use capo, I'd suggest the G7th capo.

If you find that the 'Dead good DADGAD book' is being sold by Hobgoblin, via Amazon, then I'd also certainly recommend that you go out of your way to find a Hobgoblin shop. There's a good chance that if you're interested in DADGAD, you're also interested in aspects of folk music, and there is no better shop to browse for instruments and resources than any of the Hobgoblin shops. I'm lucky, I live near Leeds where we have a cracker.
