Good job getting it back for us Chris! :mrgreen:

Now, to write a song only using the D chord... :twisted:


Been done, mate - try Dylan's "Shelter From The Storm"....all D chords, or variations thereof. As an added bonus it's in open D tuning.....and it's in the Easy Songs forum.

:D :D :D

It's about time that D chord was retired. I was getting tired of it anyway!

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!

I personally never ever play the D chord. I stopped using it at about the time that I discovered Ebb :lol:

This is serious news, indeed. The suggestion may have been in jest, but that will not stop the suits at the RIAA being all over this like a rash. It'll be illegal to download any song, containing a D chord, even if you've paid for it - you'll need to pay an extra "D Chord Temporary Unretirement (single-use only)" licence fee.
Of course, Kirk Hammett will now be suing any- and everyone for using any D chord, which may have appeared (even as a guest chord) in a Metallica song.
