What tuning do you normally play in? I seem to stick with down a whole step for that "bite" that I am after. I use 11's and it seems that down a step gives my sound that somethng extra.

I change tunings almost every week.

ATM i'm playing Drop C with 0.8
Most of the time i'm in Standard, half step down or Drop D. Drop C# is stupid!

I'm thinking of buying .10/.11 for Drop B. I want to try new stuff.

    Usually standard, occasionally I'll go down to Bb standard, or drop C.

    Mostly flicking between E Standard and Drop C# at the moment.
    Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

    I really can't stand standard tuning and never use it. It just seems alittle "bright" for my taste. I do like Eb but that extra half step makes a big difference in bending with 11's

    Uhh I believe you mean D Standard

    Normal tuning = E Standard (Bottom string is tuned to E)
    1 step down = D Standard (Bottom string is tuned to D)

    And Thats my fav tuning too - it's just a tad heavier.

    I use 10's and it handles that fine!

    I like half a step down. Yngwie tuning.. basically. However, I mainly use Standard tuning cause I'm not writing my own music at the moment. So I tend to just jam through some songs and most of them are Standard or drop D.

    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.

    E Standard. Practically all the time, even for songs not in that tuning. I just transpose them so I can play.

    I may occasionally experiment with other tunings, but normally I CBA.

    D Standard is the highest I can go, my Strat doesn't have enough springs to handle the tension of E with .12s.

    I sometimes go down to Drop B for some songs.
