Playing the bouzouki/mandola in DAEA tuning.

Chords for DAea tuning.

This page has all the information that is specific to the DAea bouzouki/mandola tuning. This tuning is becoming quite popular as an alternative tuning for the mandola, but also works (an octave lower, most likely) on a bouzouki.

The chord chart presented here for this tuning is merely a "quick & dirty" translation job from the G,DAd chord chart - the intervals are the same, only the note names are different, so I wrote a script to substitute the new note names into the chords. I've checked some, but not nearly all of them, so please let me know if you encounter any errors.

Plain text:
This gives per line the fingerings and corresponding note names, makes an attempt to name the chord, and occasionally a remark on usage.
PostScript:
This gives chord diagrams for all the chords. Of course it does not contain all the remarks and annotations that the text version has, but it's a lot easier to read.
To use the PostScript file you either need a PostScript printer, or the GhostScript software, which lets you print PostScript on most other printers.
Adobe .PDF format:
For those who already have the Adobe Acrobat Reader, the chord diagram files are now also available in .PDF format (thanks to Bill McKenty for suggesting this).
