Anyone know of good Metal/Hardcore songs in Drop D/Standard Tuning? Nothing too hard to play. For example, stuff like Black Label by Lamb Of God.
Oh snap, forgot to mention no Metallica :x Not a fan of them.
Rhythm guitars in Avenged Sevenfold's songs are pretty easy. On City of Evil tuning was Drop D but I'm not sure if it's not lower in new album.
Pull Harder On The Strings Of Your Martyr - Trivium, pretty easy. Solo may be a bit of a challenge though.
If you're after some Metal, all of Tool's stuff is in Drop D. They have some mad stuff. Easy too.

Yeah I've played some of their songs. Need more different stuff now.


I've got the tab for it, but it's in Drop C. O_o


I'll check em out. Thanks
Lamb of god seems to be the only heavy metal band that still uses drop D tuning anymore. Everyone else uses drop C tuning.

Definitely all Lamb Of God, Boom by P.O.D if you're into that, Megadeth, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath, Disturbed maybe, they use a few different tunings, Evanescence, Extreme, Iced Earth, Judas Priest, Psycroptic, Nightwish, Opeth, Pantera, Porcupine Tree, Slayer, Sodom, Testament.

Have fun.

Anything by The Devil Wears Prada, and Six by All That Remains can be played in Drop D and is fun.

Rated by difficulty, 1 being the easiest, 10 being the hardest.

Dragonforce - Operation Ground And Pound - 7
Trivium - Entrance Of The Conflagration - 3
Lamb Of God - Blood Of The Scribe - 4
Avenged Sevenfold - Beast And The Harlot - 2
Racer X - Technical Difficulties - 5 (Shred)

There's not much I can give you. The Metal/Hardcore genre most commonly plays in drop tunings.

Doesn't TOOL use drop D?

You know, because Soft rock is metal/hardcore.
