There are alot of Protest The Hero songs that are actually in Drop C# not just Drop C

jacobthesnakeob
07-17-2008, 02:04 AM
i think BTBAM use c# standard, not drop c#, but i could be wrong.

enter shikari use drop c#, as do.. uh. protest the hero, dunno if that's been mentioned, and..

in flames mostly use drop b flat, which is c standard with the e string dropped to b flat, i'm pretty sure.

you're welcome, maybe?

System of a Down uses drop C# in their latest 2 albums (Mezermize and Hypnotize), except for one song in Hypnotize (Dreaming, which is in Drop C). Some popular/good songs from those albums are:
- BYOB
- Hypnotize
- Kill Rock 'N Roll
- Lonely Day
- Sad Statue

I think Disturbed also uses Drop C#, but I'm not too sure =]

Dark Tranqullity, even though they play in C#-standard

Edit: many of the bands listed in this thread play in C-standard or drop-C. learn your tunings, fellas

[VictorinoX]

Therion uses it a good bit. Dethklok (how'd you guys miss that?)
That's all I have that isn't already listed.

Drop C or C Standard?

heretic-clown
02-03-2009, 08:43 PM
Slipknot uses it alot

Correction when Slipknot was M.F.K.R. THEN they used Drop C but as of now they mainly use Drop B and Drop A

To Topic: Like stated earlier anything from M.F.K.R., Six Feet Under, Dethklok, most stuff from Mushroomheads XX album can be played with a drop C instead of using a 7 string,
i think cannibal corpse uses it too.

This.

TBH, I can't think of that many who use drop c#. C# standard, sure, but Drop c# is so f*cking uncommon.

02-04-2009, 12:11 PM
I think Stone Gods Defend or Die is in drop C#, or at least for the last bit. I know they play Knights of the Living Dead in drop c# live

You're right. Nickelback plays the majority of their songs in either Drop D, Standard, or Drop C, they occasionally have a song thats a half step down.

Black Stone Cherry plays a lot of drop C# like in their songs Blind Man and Please Come In.

To many.

I think it can sound great when used sparringly, like a little sugar on cerial.
All the time though is like dumping 6 tablespoons on the cerial.
I think to many bands use it to sound heavy becuase they can't write anything that has not allready been done and done better by 1995.

While yes I noticed this thread is 4 years old, I had to point out the fact that Children Of Bodom has never used Drop C# tuning, it's always either been C# Standard, D Standard, or Drop C. A few people on the first page from four years ago were claiming they've used Drop C#, I sure showed them... >_>

in flames [dont know for sure]

How many fsckin times do I have to repeat that In Flames does not have a single song in C# standard. Also not in Drop C# or Drop C. Lunar Strain, and Subterranean are in D, from Jester Race through Colony it's C (with maybe some Drop A# in between), and from Reroute To Remain to the present it's Drop A#
