Isn't Everlong by the foo fighters in drop d?

Try that and Bron Yr Aur Stomp by Led Zeppelin

What type of music do you listen to?
Nirvana has a lot of dropped D stuff.

Alot of people mistake "Bron Y aur Stomp" for "Bron Yr Aur".

-"Bron Yr Aur" is played in open C6.. the tab for this can be found here http://www.guitaretab.com/l/led-zeppelin/10193.html

-"Bron Y Aur Stomp" is played in CFCFAF (open F?) and the tab can be found in the quote above.

That has gotta be one of the most pansy tunings I've ever seen. What is that for, a friggin slide guitar?:rolleyes:

Anyways, alt tunings:

Some Poison and G n' R songs have some alternate, or dropped step tunings that sound nice. Depends on your talent level and what you're looking for complexity wise.

You could try children's dance by alex de grassi, but you gotta have the hunger - it is not easy at all.
