Is drop D tuning cheating?

And do you think it could work for punXka?
In the sence that punk has a "could work" in it.
Do you think it does to a certain extent..

thats honestly the dumbest thing ive heard.
How the hell can that be cheating? its a method to create new tones and sounds, so no it isnt cheating.
And it can work in punk if you want it to. there arent any rules, just guidelines.

Sorry to sound like a prick but its true. Music is what you want it to be, no one can tell you what you have to do.

Yes I know what drop d tuning is. I'm just confused as to why it would be "cheating" or what you mean by "In the sence that punk has a "could work" in it."
I'm an asshole.

Drop D cheating? No it ain't. Although personally I don't use it, it would make me change my finger patterns for power chords and I'm too lazy to do that. Oh and changing tunings is pain in the ass with Floyd Roses.

Although, if you DO use drop D, try to play it with a guitar slide and tell me how it went. It's the first thing I would do.

I'm gonna look for my old Squire now, restring it and tune to drop D, then play slide with it. Yes, it's gonna be a long night.

Also, WTF is a punXka? A person? Band? Genre?

nvm, it's not important.

I actually never even realised it was the Punk forum, I just saw "Cheating? Or Good?" And checked it out. Why is this in the Punk forum? Shouldn't it be in Guitar Techniques or something? Also, why do you hate The Pit?

And the reason why I would think it's cheating is because it's to easy to play.. And most bands like System Of The Down use it.. Not saying their bad just saying it's lame.

Personally, I hate drop D because I usually finger barre chords even when I'm only playing power chords, because the chances of me accidentally hitting a fourth string are pretty high, and obviously I can't play barre chords in drop D. I'd rather just tune down to D standard.

Me too^ I also use alot of open chords so I dont like it, but its fine for punk and not exactly cheating, but some people can hardl;y play any faster power chord riffs in standard, and thats not okay.

I play C#G#C#F#A#D# or DADGBE..
so yes a drop d...

too easy to play, that's just crap....
Say you play a powerchord...

D|-5
A|-5
D|-5

or

D|-5
A|-5
E|-3

Isnt it both easy :')?
Drop D creates new tones for me while using both lowest snares and the powerchords I do use are mostly on A snare anyway, so no cheating.

I certainly don't consider using any tuning to be cheating.

That said, I wouldn't consider Drop D tuning to be tonally appropriate to the genre, unless it's hella-gay d-beat sh*t.

I think open E tuning is pretty punx. It's great for the "I can't play" aesthetic.

So, because someone tunes their guitar differently makes them (whatever your insult was meant to be). Makes no sense. Sensible and user-friendly comments please or you'll start feeding the troll.:@

Dropped D isn't cheating. You can't cheat in music unless you use a backing track or something. Just because someone tunes their E string a tone down doesn't mean they've cheated. This thread has certainly revealed some stupid ideas about "cheating".
