    if by "master," you mean "play really, really fast," then no.

    Peppino D'Agostino uses DADGAD on more than a few tunes, I think. He's a pretty fierce tapper, as well. His tune "Echo of Delphi Valley" is in DADGAD and uses some pretty sweet left-hand hammers.

    About 85% of Laurence Juber's tunes are in DADGAD. He's not nearly as good a composer as Bensusan, but he's very skilled and his pieces are pretty fun.

    I have more respect for how catchy their songs are than anything. They write great melodies, and the lyrics are pretty funny.
