What do I need to learn before I can alternate tune my guitar? Just that you'll be playing a different shape to what someone in standard tuning would. It's up to you whether that matters to you. In fact some use these specifically for the different tonal qualities they get. out of tune and you just didn't realize. Any way to watch Netflix on an iPad Air (MD788LL/A)? Dealing with frustration and a demonstrable lack of progress. So, if you're tuning a tone flat, cross off "D" from the xx0232 shape on your standard chord dictionary, and write "C" instead; replace "E" with "D", "C" with "Bb" and so on. My own exploration of the Baritone tunings started with trying to find that dark tone where the strings start to rattle.

Which strings should I use for DADGAD tuning on my acoustic guitar? I am not sure but I think that the dedicated "low tension" strings should probably sound the same pitch with just lower tension.

You could then read the same music as a B♭ instrument (IIRC, trumpet, tenor sax, clarinet) without having to transpose. Finally, there's always the option of a capo. Second way: Retain the standard set of letters-to-shapes in your chord dictionary, but do the transposition in your head as you play. No - as long as your strings are tuned to the correct notes.
