Drop C#/Db.

Them Bones by Alice In Chains, and Unchained by Van Halen are in Drop C#.

Post-Paranoid Sabbath is in C# Standard, and so is everything with Josh Homme.

No, most of Disturbed's stuff is in Drop D.

Between the Buried and Me's three most recent albums, Colors, Alaska, and The Silent Circus are all in C# Standard, im not sure about their first one, though, it may or may not be.

It might be Drop Db or something that I was thinking of.

Kamelot's Ghost Opera album is in Dropped C#.

Just search for the guitar pro file Rule the World here on UG in Guitar Tabs.

I believe High on Fire is all C# Standard.

If you search on Metalkult . com there's a video interview with Matt Pike and he goes over his setup.

Also, Black Sabbath's works after Paranoid aren't ALL in C#. The Dio albums are usually in Eb. "After Forever" on "Master of Reality" seems to be in D standard. The acoustic songs like "Orchid" are all in E Standard, AFAIK. Four or so songs on "Sabotage" are in standard.
