Anyone that has played guitar for a while knows that there are about 1,473,592 different ways to tune a guitar. What's your favorite one? Mine's C# standard because of how deep and awesome it sounds.
My Ibanez is my baby.
7 string B standard or C# standard I just can't decide. Although I think I lean more towards my 7 cuz it's the best guitar I have.
Eb standard. better vocal range

It's because Garth Brooks brings the ****in' br00tz.
lol drop d half step down makes my blood boil. it isnt drop d anymore is it? it went another half step down? it's drop c#!? isnt it!??

i like Eb standard, but i like open tunings from time to time, it's easy to stumble across interesting progressions in open tunings.
D standard on a six string, drop G on a seven string

EDIT: open tunings are fun though, i like open Dm and C6
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Don't really have a favourite tuning, they all have different sounds and different feels... my 7 string is currently in drop G though and that's working pretty well for me...

“A man who mistakes secrets for knowledge is like a man who, seeking light, hugs a candle so closely that he smothers it and burns his hand.”

I'm used to standard tuning. Though D and C sound awesome as well.
Gear for the moment:
Epiphone Goth Explorer (w/stock pickups)
Peavey Vypyr 15 watt Amp
Boss PW-10 V-Wah Pedal
Drop Wumbo. It's one step lower than Drop Z (666 octaves below standard).
probably C# standard(damn you BTBAM)

im also really into drop B now because of bands like Veil of Maya and A Plea For Purging
Drop C# for my primary genre (heavy/metalcore/death/symphonic/etcetc metal)
D# Standard for alternative stuff, mostly AFI or Coheed and Cambria
Drop A/ B Standard for death metal.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

My favorite tuning is Drop C, I just love it. But recently I noticed I have hit a hill that I just cant get over so I went back to standard to relearn my basics and start learning chords and music theory like I should have from the start.
Eb Standard (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
Open Gb (Db Gb Db Gb Bb Db)
Drop Dd (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
Db Standard (Db Gb Cb E Ab Db)
Open Eb (Eb Bb Eb G Bb Eb

Everything sounds better flat.

E and Eb standard...they are the only tunings i ever use. On occasion ill go drop D, but thats it
Eb standard
C# Standard.

Both gives me the exact tones I want at the moment.
I use Standard, Drop D, Eb Standard, Drop C#, D Standard and Drop C. My personal favourite would probably be D Standard. Standard tuning, a step lower. Juicy shit.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.

Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.
Eb for me. Haven't tried a lot of other tunings though, E Standard, Drop D... That's about it

I really like Eb 'cause most of my favourite heavy/power bands play a half step down...
