i have been looking at DADGAD tuning as being easier chords less stretchy, and better sound for celtic music.
i have tried it on my Tenor Guitar DGAD of course as there are 4 strings.
is it generally found to be easier chording, as i am used to mandolin tenor banjo and tenor guitar and baritone uke
4 strings being  easier to finger.
i have sent for a book on dadgad  is it a popular tuning
