August Burns Red, some As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, if you want to play D Standard you could do All That Remains, Darkest Hour.

I don't know those are just a few that I know off the top of my head.
Hope it helps

As I Lay Dying, Children of Bodom, Chimaira, some Disturbed, Darkest Hour, DevilDriver on The Last Kind Words, System Of A Down, many more. Will add more if I think of them.

Do you mean C-G-C-F-A-D or C-F-A#-E-B-C (I think that's it...)? Some people get confused and call it Drop C when it's actually C Standard or vice versa. If it's the latter, there are a few more names I can give you.

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.


Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...

C Standard is not Drop C.

If you go D Standard you can play some Death, Atheist (I think), Nightwish and a lot of other Metal bands. Becoming the Archetype plays in Drop C and has some cool basslines in their first album.

Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.

i dont know how you could get confused between drop C and C standard. C standard is every string tuned down 2 steps, drop C is all but the E string (E when in E standard) down one step and the E string down two steps. dont see how its that confusing.
can someone recommend some songs thatre fun for bass?

Mastodon uses Drop C on a lot of their songs, but some use D Standard (not hard to get to from Drop C) and some Drop the top to A (but keep the rest 1 step down). So play some Mastodon.
#16
In my opinion I think you should go a little lower on the tuning and try to play some Born of Osiris. Also, Between the Buried and Me have a pretty sick bassist

The Faceless

And a lot of deathcore bands like Born of Osiris
Other planes lie beyond the reach
Of normal sense and common roads
But they are no less real
Than what we see or touch or feel

Nickelback has used Drop-C in two of their albums. "The Long Road", had it on almost every song. "All the Right Reasons", used it for a few songs also.

2-3 songs are not a lot.
