Could someone give me some examples of bands that use E-flat tuning?
I know bands like iced earth and Guns n Roses do.

Alot of Hard Rock from the 80's does as far as I'm informed.

Oh yeah, E flat isn't called the "Hendrix Tuning" for nothing.

Green Day did for a while, at least on Dookie.
I believe Van Halen did at some point as well.
Stevie Ray Vaughan used it alot/always.

Quite a few metal bands actually, including Metallica for a while.
A lot of the 80's, including Van Halen in many instances.

It's actually very popular. I tried to convince my band to use it actually, but the other guitarist/vocalist in it is very proud of his ability to hit high notes, so it was a no-go.
Hey you! Yes, you! Buy my music! It's cool and stuff!

Hendrix, Coheed and Cambria, Stevie Ray Vaughan. Various bands of various styles. I am not a big fan of it myself, but whatever.

Flat wounds. Flat wounds on everything. Everything is a little fatter when it's flatter.

Saxon do on some of their older stuff and all their new stuff, Van Halen do, Disturbed do on Perfect Insanity, maybe some others, Black Sabbath do on most things from Heaven and Hell on, Megadeth on Youthanasia album, Nirvana on In Utero and that acoustic album and a lot of Ozzy Osbourne. Oh yeah, Yngwie Malmsteen does too.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Most grunge and 90s rock bands played in E flat, especially Alice in Chains and The Smashing Pumpkins.

Most Weezer songs are in E flat as well. Jimi Hendrix played in it a lot too.

Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

Rory Gallagher. Only joking, he had a 'phobia' of it.

Didn't Yngwie Malmsteen use it? Or am I imagining things again?
