I have a Faith Mercury Parlor 'Scoop' that mostly stays in DADGAD and it loves it.the bass response that is often missing in parlor guitars is excellent and if I leave it in standard tuning for to long it starts to sulk. then you end up taking it to drop D just to cheer it up but then it says to me "what Dropped D! hell go the whole hog"' "go to DADGAD and I promise I will sing for you" and she obliges........ and I agree Bensusan is insanely good. as apposed to me !!!!!

Pierre Bensusan is perhaps the greatest DADGAD player. He plays a Lowden.
