Alternate Tunings

I am finding it more and more difficult to play the guitar in standard tuning.  Some time ago I experimented with D tuning on the acoustic and E on the electric.  I chose these mostly because it’s simple to switch between the two as fingering is basically the same, just a tone different.  I tuned the second acoustic to A recently and liked that too, but for the most part now when I pick up a guitar it’s the D tuning I play.  When I first started with D tuning I came up with a little ditty that over the last few months I have been adding little bits as I get more comfortable using it.  I am now at the point where I need to figure out how these little pieces join together to make a complete tune.  Hopefully once I do that I can record it.  Joy!
