Whammy pedal maybe? but that drops all of the tones coming out of the guitar up to two steps down and two steps up

Even though I quit doing it, it still turns me on when I see money.

No, they have several songs but they are not all in the same tuning, he's not changing mid-song.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

Play the Drop D songs in Drop C, or the Drop C songs in Drop D.

I doubt you'll even hear much of a difference.

Yup, I love playing Drop D songs in Drop C makes them heavy as hell...

And if you dont have another guitar just do like they already stated throw on a capo..

it takes a very short time to tune a guitar, besides your singer can talk and connect with the audience while your tuning, just arrange your set so you only have to change tunings once or twice.

Use a capo, unless that eliminates precious high frets. That's the only downside I can see to using a capo.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

This. Just make the the singer knows about it. PLEASE.

And the good thing about tuning in the middle of the show is that the singer can talk to the audience.

I'm Joel. I play guitar. I am a student. I look at the cost of tuition, not in a dollar value, but in the guitars I'm sacrificing now, to be able to buy later.

no one I know has a guitar worth borrowing. I think I'll just buy a new guitar. Maybe a schecter atx or a Gibson longhorn...

not the whammy, the drop tune feature in that sucks...i think some pods can drop a whole step but idk if you're buying a pedal just for that feature you might be out of luck...u might have to just get a multieffects like some kinda pod that has taht in it

Pod doesn't do it worth, well, worth crap. Trust me. I've tried many a time.
