I have no tattoos to share, but I do have this sweet ass chord.

I call this one the "Super D". This D chord sounds both massive and lush.

Standard Tuning (low to high)

Ring Finger: E String, 5th Fret
Pinky Finger: A String, 5th Fret
Open: D String
Index Finger: G String, 2nd Fret
Middle Finger: B String, 3rd Fret

You can barre the high E string at the second fret with your index finger, but I usually just play the first five strings. If you are in Drop D tuning (attention @furricane), just play the low D open for a heavier sounding voicing.

your SUPER D looks like a swan is bowing down in gratitude to the awesomeness of the sounds your guitar sings forth.

NIce chord Sir. Now go get yourself a tattoo. You're running out of time.


Also, hope you don't mind. I'm using Townes lyrics for my lyric captions this week (was already the plan), but I did mention your connection to him in my "about" section when creditting him.

"This is part of a musical trilogy in D...minor. I find it to be the saddest of all keys. I don't know what it is but people hear it and start to weep instantly."
