    Default Castles In The Air DADGAD Tuning

    I am looking for a music score - Castles In The Air in DADGAD Tuning. Does any one have a copy to share?

    Does anyone know of a book of Celtic Tunes all written for DADGAD?

    Yes, I know that I am asking for the near impossible, however, if one never ask they will never know.

    Thank you, johnnysmash

    Hi, Johnny!

    This one is tab for DADGAD.
    https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab...ir_tabs_652635

    This one is power tab for DADGAD.
    https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab...r_power_520664

    Power tab is can be played on Tuxguitar, and it is easier, because you can listen to the music with tab. You can download bottom of the page (see the photo below).

    Thank you. I got it copied now. I think someone in my family or even myself in the past have logged into this site. When I entered my e-mail to join, they said "already taken". So I got a new password. Then when I try to open I get their opening page to the site that everyone gets like this is the first time I ever came to their site. I get no further, just go around and around in circles.

    For information - I am still looking for a book/books of Celtic music, tabs or standard, with full arrangements, in DADGAD. I noticed some on Amazon and another place. But first I would like to hear from someone who has seen or purchased the book. It is expensive to buy on line plus shipping cost plus waiting for product to arrive. I have waited as long as two months in past. Of course I am always open to a free downloadable score/s - LOL

    Hey, it is time to practice -have a great day everyone.

    YAHALIELE - I learned the D scale from John Sherman site. I like that scale. Since I can pick out tunes that I know a lot better on a C scale, I dropped the D scale 2 half tones. So now I am tuned CGCFGC. When I want DADGAD I can just capo on 2nd fret. I got a big surprise doing this. My strings have a lot more sustain and are much mellower. Easy to play in other keys using the same fingering, just move the capo. From C low to C high I have a full three octaves. Maybe I can find out some other things about it tonight, like some chords and arpeggios.

    Looking through some of my music books I came across a book, "Celtic Guitar Encyclopedia" Fingerstyle Guitar Edition by Glenn Weiser. On page 18 I found "Castles in the Air", key of G. I need to search my books better when I am looking for a song. I am going to try it on mostly the 3rd string, G string, in DADGAD.
