Playin some Kyuss green machine. tuned to drop c, and can't get that opening riff to sound right. the tab says its a power chord(the 7 9 part):


But that doesn' sound right at all. way to high. anyone know?
Play the 997 as 775.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.
i tried it in drop c standard too, way worse. drop standard has all the strings the same as standard, only the top string changes to a c like drop d, right?

the 75 sounds better, but i've seen a video where josh homme plays it exactly in the 97 area. i'm confused.
I meant C standard tuning, as in every single string is tuned down 2 whole steps. It seems the few tabs of the song on here are like that.
Looks like C standard. You tune every string down two whole steps. EADGBE to CFA#D#GC.
