Everytime I play songs off of Ride the Lightning with the track on in the backround, it never sounds right, it sounds like my guitar is sharp. I know I am playing it right, and I checked 10,000 times to make sure I was in standard. I also tried it in Eb and it sounded flat.
I didn't know if for that album they played at a different frequency other than 440 maybe? I've heard of it done before I just didn't know if this was one of them.

Either you're imagining it, or your tuner's knackered. I've never had a problem with it sounding off

A ton of duets maybe? Cause for example, the opening 2 chords on for whom the bell tolls sounds off, but the chorus for Creeping Death Sounds dead on?

Sounds fine for me in standard tuning.

Some records are about a quarter step flat or sharp, for various reasons, such as the speed of the master tape being changed after recording, but that doesn't appear to be the case here.

Even my lower end Tradition sounds fine in 440 when I play along. Fade to Black, FWTBT, Creeping Death and Fight Fire with Fire all sound fine.

Ok just to clear things up, I'm using the tuner installed on my digitech GNX 3, and its a very picky tuner.

Also, when I play without the song going, it does sound fine, its just when the song is playing in the backround.

I agree dude it's like when they recorded they were out of tune...

Apparently the guitars in FWTBT are tuned slightly sharp.

EDIT: See!

Mmkay, thanks guys. I was hoping that I wasn't going insane and that it was only me.

I had this same issue, I think the problem is older recording technology had their frequencies different than 440, so I that obviously made them different.

Either that or they sped up the track.

Listen a little bit, we DON'T suck!

They sped up the record a little when they recorded I think, so its a bit sharper than 440.
