Drop Chord diagramD MajorD tuning


*=Palm mute the chord
/=slide to
^=bend up and down really fast and a lot
'=just rest your fingers on the chord (=easier)

Look at the bottom about how to do the harmonics..
Guess you know it already but some might not, so.. Hell.. it probably won't hurt anybody:)

Here we go. This isn't easy I should say!

Phew.. That was the "intro," now for the final part:

First you should play this: (remember: ')

Then right after, this:
