Standard tuning down half a step; Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb, some songs are in the Drop D variant of that tuning. So Drop Db or C#

They typically played in Eb tuning. The idiots who are telling you that they tuned any lower or used a Drop tuning are idiots. Their heavy sound didn't come from tuning low; it came from using distortion well and writing heavy riffs.

Tunings =/= keys, even though certain tunings make it easier to play in certain keys.

All right, all right. I admit I got that part wrong. But they certainly never played in C# or Drop D was my point. To me, it sounded like TS was saying they played in C#standard or in Drop D, and that is incorrect.

To be fair though, I think we can assume that TS was talking about classic AiC, not their newer stuff. Also, "Them Bones" I was taught is in Eb.

Edit:
I see I was taught wrong about "Them Bones".

this thread is awful

But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon

That one's in Eb standard. There's a video of Jerry teaching it on youtube somewhere.

They used a couple weird open tunings too on songs like Over Now and Nothin Song

Glad to see the sex king getting some action I think it might be time for me to pull him out again tonight and take him for a spin around the rift.

A majority of their stuff is Eb or drop Db, which are clearly the best tunings.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

They wrote all of their songs in the "Too heavy for you" tuning. To get a good tone from that tuning, it is required that you use .23 to .86 gauge strings made of razorwire.

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

Probably Drop C#

It was the "grunge tuning."


Which is funny because other than AiC, Nirvana was really the only other one that used that tuning.

Probably because it's a shitty tuning used by shitty bands who should therefore feel bad.
