The lowest I know of is on this guys myspace

Myspace Link

It's called Angus McGillicuddy? And it's in drop G, and it sounds badass.

I suppose there might be bands that use 8 strings so they can go lower then that but yeah. What's a song you know of that uses a very low tuning? (That you like)
"If I told you that, I'd have to kill you."
"Why is it like.. top secret?"
"No."

John Mayer tunes to Drop-D for "Your Body Is A Wonderland". That song is just to heavy for me to enjoy.

Drop Z#, capo-d on the -3rd fret.

Stengah is in E an octave below

SUNN O))) tune an octave down.

But I assume you're looking for more rhythm-based songs.

"Death Walking Terror" by Cannibal Corpse is great. Drop G#. (Maybe G# high-to-low, but they usually play in Bb)
SikTh play in Drop G#, and they've used it really well as a technical band.

Yo-Yo Ma plays in drop Ab I heard.

Meshuggah are using F standard with 8 strings, which is pretty sick. And aren't Nile doing something similar with 9 strings now?

Morbid Angel plays in Bb


You sure about that? I thought they played in D standard, at least on their earlier stuff. Haven't heard much of their stuff more recently, I still love Altars of Madness beyond pretty much anything.

So they play bass?
How about a high five?

I have a guitar I keep tuned to D standard but w/ the 6th string dropped to G.

EDIT: It gets the awesome low octave going, except I keep the 4th string a D and I tune the top three strings to an F triad.
