More often called Drop C#.

Trivium tuned down to Drop C# on their latest album and All That Remains has been playing in Standard C# for a while now.

Don't forget Protest The Hero's Kezia and I think SikTh's first album too...

So, they'd consider Eb Tuning D# then?

As you know, Eb and D# are both the same, so there's not really much point arguing over semantics. It has to be said though, I see Eb far more than D#. As long as you understand that they're both different names for the same thing, it's not a major issue

They are in pitch, but if you are "dropping" from an Eb a whole step, then you are at a Db, as the TS indicated in context. So, in his case it's not semantics, OR an argument, unless you construe a question, an "argument".

Kind of reminds me when Marty Friedman said the relative Minor of E major was a Db...

Though he does make some awesome music with his fractured music theory, kinda shows how irrelevant semantics are when you have a working pair of ears.

Apologies, I may have skim-read and misunderstood - I was just talking about D#/Eb, totally missed the whole Db thing somehow. I didn't mean argument in a negative way, I just meant it's not a major issue. Forgive me and carry on, my bad

Pantera also tuned down slightly from standard E to get that grungy sound. I kind of like it actually and thought about trying it on my guitar, but I'm lazy and just tune to standard or drop tunings lol. Most I've done is Drop C, which you have to do all strings down so ya lol. That was annoying if you don't leave it in that tuning.

My favourite tunings are:-

Standard
Eb
Drop D
Strd C Tuning
and drop C.

My personal opinion is that drop D sounds good for most songs and it helps to hit some of the lower notes, depending how low you wanna tune your guitar sometimes you're better off getting a 7/8 string guitar rather than mess around with the tuning of a 6 string guitar. Some guitars don't make very pleasant noises if they're tuned too low.
