Open G chords are popular with a number of artists, they are especially good for creating a country blues sound. Kieth Richards from the Rolling Stones has used this tuning extensively, in the right hands this tuning can produce some easy to play catchy riffs. (Tip: Sonny Landreth, Keith Richards, and other open-G masters often lower the second string slightly so the major third is in tune with the overtone series. This adjustment dials out the dissonance, and makes those big, one-finger major chords come alive.)
