Im using my guitar in drop d now, but I need songs to play in drop D.
I need heavy metal or hard rock songs, please
#3
Well you might start playing some The Devil Wears Prada and Asking Alexandria, those have awesome somes easy to play and fun.
#4
Dude the majority of modern rock/metal bands play in Drop D. You really need to expand your music if you haven't found at least 10 badass songs in Drop D.

Anyways, I suggest

Annihilator - King of the Kill
Tool - The Pot
Most tool songs are good but not all of them are fun or intense to play.

System of a down if you're into them

Like I said. Many modern bands.

Dude, I hear a lot of music, I have at least 3 TB of music. But, I only know pantera with Drop D.
I don't want to down a whole tone the guitar. And I want some groove metal, or thrash.

Im into every kind of music, man.
But most into melodic rock/hard rock/heavy metal.
And yes, cause a lot of band plays in whole tone down.
#12
Can't suggest King of the Kill enough. It's fun as hell and good for the fingers.

check out their songs:

Redneck
11th Hour
Laid To Rest
Hourglass

Fun to play.

Soundgarden has some stuff in drop D. Spoonman and Blackhole Sun being the obvious ones, but they have some others I believe like Black Rain.

Wolfmother has several on both albums, such as Colossal and Joker and the Thief, but those are pretty easy and simple.
#18
A hell of a lot of Avenged Sevenfold, All that Remains, Velvet Revolver blah blah blah.....

If you have 3TB of music and you only know of Pantera using Drop D, you need to expand your musical interests. I have about 0.8 TB of music and I have lots of songs in Drop D. And like you I listen to everything from classical to rap to punk to neo-classical. Dream Theater uses Drop D on occasion, as does Metallica, Megadeth, Opeth, Iron Maiden, etc.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Having lots of music does not have anything to do with knowing what tuning a band plays in.

You can hear drop d the more you listen to it. So if you listen to lots of music you will hear what songs are in drop d.

Demon of the fall. That song is fun to play.
Some Porcupine Tree songs are in Drop D as well.
You can try some Muse if you feel like (Stockholm syndrom, Small print are in Drop D)

No. Right. They use a number of tunings including Drop C, Drop Db, D standard and yes, Drop D.

Drop D makes your low E string 2 semitiones lower - but crucially you still have ALL THE SAME notes that you have in standard tuning.

Tuning to Drop D doesn't magically prevent you from playing anything that was originally played in standard, you only have to transpose the notes on the bottom string - everything else stays exactly the same.

Your tuning has no bearing on what you can play, it merely changes how you play it.

Not on any of the last 3 albums, after that I don't really care.

Lamb of God's Broken Hands is a relatively easy song in Drop D.
4arm makes shit easy songs in Drop D
Trivium's Ascendancy album was made entirely in Drop D.
METAL!
