i tried a tab on here for broken wings by alter bridge, the tab has good reviews and has been given 5 start but for some reason i cant get it to sound right! the tab requires a tuning i have never used before (drop b) i dont think thats the problem, but it just doesnt sound right, the strings sound slack......has anybody got any ideas where im going wrong??
Yes, mark drops the E string down to a B.. It will feel slack and you may need a heavier gauge of strings in order to get some tension back when you down tune. Zakk Wylde does this loads too. He has a custom gauge though with an extra thick sixth string for that particular tuning and those particular songs.
Yeah, the tab is right (well, it's how I play it anyway), it's just a bit of a weird tuning.
what gauge do you recomend?
