You´ve allready got a lot of answers on your question.
I will just tell you that I have also begin to play in DADGAD tuning and I like it a lot.
When it comes to the strings I saw a video with Pierre Bensusan. A great french guitarplayer and he is a real DADGAG phantom ;-).
He suggested that one should have one size heavier strings on the two highest (D and A) and the two lowest (D and A).
I found that John Pierse strings had that set. They call it _hawaian slack key_. You can order directly from their website and I can asure you that it´s very good strings. I´ve used them a lot and I have even let my friends try JP-strings (medium gauge) and they say that the strings are incredible good.

Ämne: DADGAD Question
> Hi! :-)
> I was thinking of trying out the DADGAD tuning for guitar but I've got a few

> Are the high "G" and "A" (of the "GAD" part) only a 2nd apart, or are there
> some octaves being hopped?
> What strings should I be using? The standard tuning is spread by 5ths and
> one 4th. Obviously, DADGAD isn't... so should I just use strings which
> would be appropriate for the standard note *nearest* the DADGAD notes?
> Any advice?
> Thanks in advance,
