b------------
g------------
d---0--1--0
a---0--1--0
d---0--1--0

There isnt enough frets to keep going down!

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

Just remove the part from the a string and play it as normal. It's an octave up, but it'll sound right.
Hey look, a stoner/doom album.

try doing this instead:

d----------
a---5--6--5
d---5--6--5

that way you're playing the inverted versions of those power chords. It won't sound perfect, but you can usually play it without anyone noticing it sounds different.

um.. wouldnt it be like..

e
b
g
d2 3 2
a2 3 2
e0 1 0

Sure, its not the exzact same chord, but your going to get the exzact same sound out of this. these chords are just 1 - 2 steps higher than drop D

I'm pretty sure he doesn't want to have to change the whole key of the song just for that one part, thus the conundrum. Amirite, METAL_MAN135?

The Name of The Original Post is "What can I use to replace this Drop D chord in standard E?". I'm sorry but that confused me. I thought he wanted to play these chords without having to change tunings.

Sorry, next time I wont suggest anything, becuase apparently, im full of unuseful information and discredible knowledge.

I wouldnt want anyone with a stick up thier ass to go getting all offended on me now.

Perfect 4ths, i.e. inverted fifths. Same thing, 'cept the sound even more metal than fifths

i) He might have a floating trem, so dropping just one string is a hell of a lot of work.
ii) He might have a low string gauge, so dropping a string would make is sound slack
iii) Also, if you think playing in perfect 4ths is a lot of work...it's not.
