Good one, Forgetful Jones! As far as I know, Buddy only recorded one tune ever in Dropped-D tuning, "New Lovin' Blues", but it was such a ripping rendition I do think it qualifies him as a major stylist in that playing position/tuning.
All best,

Lonnie Johnson who recorded probably the largest total of songs with dropped tuning of the early blues artists.

Hi Jostber,
I reckon most of Lonnie Johnson's early pieces were in DGDGBE tuning rather than Dropped-D, though they can be played in Dropped-D.

Hi all,
I'd suggest Mance Lipscomb, who almost always used Dropped-D to play in A, and recorded a host of songs using that approach.

Hi all,
I'd put Willie Lofton  in this category, despite his having recorded only one accompaniment (though used on two different songs). His "Dark Road Blues", a version of "Big Road Blues" is ripping, whew!



All best,
Johnm
