This may be in the wrong place :confused:

Anyway, what tuning(s) do you use to write and play songs in for your band?

In my band, we tune to Drop D and Drop B (B F# B E G C)

Do tell...

My band uses all kinds of tunings. Mostly either Drop D or Drop B but we have a few songs here and there that are in Standard, Drop C or Drop C#

E, Eb, D and Drop D

Started off in Standard, went down to Drop D, but now we're steady on Drop C. Don't see it changing in the new future.

Standard, and proud. 'Tis a man's tuning. Don't need no fancy-shmancy tunings.

Standard, sometimes Eb standard.

Standard usually, i have one song in drop d that we'll have to play at some point, when the keyboard thing gets figured out.

Standard all the way.

The guitars go in Drop D, The bassist in my band uses a 5 string tuned ADADG, and of course my synths are in standard :)

EB Standard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Standard, Drop D. Also, I'd probably use a Capo a bit

My band plays in drop D because the other guitar player is a stuborn jerk and won't play anything in standard even though I love standard. I also have a band for this summer program because there is a talent show and we(90% me) wrote a song in standard that is way better than anything my band has done, but the other guitar player and bass player have no commitment.

My Band's tuning is ridiculous we tune to Bb standard and I don't like it at all it's too low for my tastes

^Psh. Sonata Arctica and Meshuggah tune to should you!
Not really. Whatever tuning you like is just fine.

We're in Standard. I prefer down tunings (D, C#, C?B can be a bit too low sometimes...)
But as I'm only using FR-packed guitars these days...
