I thought that drop B was a step down from drop c but than why is the F sharp and why is it differatn then C standard with the Low C dropped to B


am I stupid?

there's only a half step between B and C. Therefore, Drop B is Drop D, 3 half steps down like Drop C is Drop D, 2 half steps down.

Drop B is C# Standard with the low C# dropped to a B.

Drop D is E standard with E dropped to D.
Drop C is D standard with D dropped to C.
Drop B is C standard with C dropped to B. And so on and so forth.

I'm pretty sure it has to do with the fact that from C to B, is only a half step, therefore it isnt exactly the same as drop C, in which you drop the 6th string a full step down when you're in D standard. It's kinda hard to explain, it'd be easier to show you I guess.

Actually, it's with the C dropped one half step and the rest raised one half step, to keep the relationship and you can play your one-finger power chords.

Okay? I use Different tunings depending upon what I'm playing I don't see why people hate low tunings.

Don't get me wrong I like Dropped C, but for me, that for a different genre. It just depends what I'm in the mood for. I love both types of tuning, though, no hate.

E-standard, MAYBE e-flat for me. I only use drop d when I'm in the mood for some old Soundgarden vibes, or maybe RATM.

EDIT: I lied. I also use D-A-D-G-A-D a lot on acoustic, and I've experimented around with D-A-D-F#-A-D. the last one is good for slide playing.

Yeah I agree with that totally, I use standard when I'm playing alt-rock and celtic music but I tune to Drop c or B for Metalcore/Death metal

I tried using DADGAD once didn't work out for me so I went to DADFAD and I love it. Such an awesome tuning.

I really enjoy the darker tones of dropped tunings regardless of genre. I play in Standard 80% of the time but I still enjoy playing lower.

Just remember that B and C are only a half step away just like E and F.
