Playing in a band with a a friend of mine lately, and I'm not used to any drop tunings at all, and consequently they have amny songs written in Drop C

Give me a couple songs that make use of the tuning without being *OPEN CHUG BRUTAL BREAKDOWN*. Oh, and no tech death or anything that makes me go SweepSweepFiddlyDiddlySweepDo.

Please?

Do they play a lot of inverted chords?

A lot of 9ths, 7ths, and the like?

P.S. Not Sarcasm

Racer X's "Superheroes" album was done mostly in Drop C. Steve Vai's "Bad Horsie" is in Drop C. there's a few others I can't think of right now. I think some of Motley Crue's older **** was done in Drop C as well.

Ugh, nothing like that either.

*goes to edit first post*

Oh, and Fightstar were kind of what I wanted, not stylistically but moreso that they use a lot of chords other than just 5ths.

^ Already know a bunch of their stuff.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

this too.

also, In Dying Days - As Blood Runs Black.

check out August Burns Red.
basically, any good death/metalcore band.
emphasis on good. BFMV is not good metalcore.

I'm not looking for metalcore, and especially not deathcore, though

Unless one of the bands has veyr interesting chord progressions and shapes.

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.

The Sword plays alot of stuff in drop C

oh yeah and Queens of the Stoneage plays alot of drop C as well as alot of stoner rock/doom bands, since you were looking for stuff thats not metalcore or stuff like that

[quote="'[VictorinoX"]']try the red alert theme "Hell March"

It's in drop D, but it would sound so badass in Drop C

Forgot about themes. That's a pretty badass one, no doubt.

Alright, I think a combination of Drop D songs detuned, themes, Racer X, and Steve Vai is good for me.

Thanks.

WRONG!
Most of CoB's two latest records.

And something off of Architects' "Nightmare"-album?

And maybe Darkest Hour, though that isn't really what you're looking for.
You shall listen to Kamelot.

not that its very badass at all, but i first started learning rock guitar in drop c with Chevelle's "Wonder What's Next" album. But if youre looking for something a bit more challenging and varying, system of a down is pretty fun.
