Okay, so I'm working on guitar covers and I am getting really fed up of having to tune down and tune up my guitar constantly (call me lazy, but it's better for the strings). So I'm just going to start playing in Drop D down a whole step (CGCFAD). Since Im a songwriter mainly, I didn't think this would be a problem....but now I want to cover songs in my spare time...does anyone know any post-hardcore songs on the lighter side that are in this tuning?? Thanks!! (Person with the most helpful comment will get an e-hug/e-highfive along with my eternal love and knowing that they are

Or you could, you know, learn to transpose songs...

@TS:
I do hope you properly set up your guitar for Drop C. Adjusting the truss rod, bridge, & intonation (on a non-floating bridge equipped guitar) are all required. If, of course, you simply used heavier strings, then you wouldn't have to fuss with the truss rod. If you choose to ignore me (and haven't already done this), then watch the neck of your guitar bend into a weird shape, which isn't that fun.

Totally off topic, but I'm listening to "Closer" right now and I read the title of your thread at the same moment Reznor sings it in the song.

EDIT:

On topic, I would just stay in standard and drop D. That way you only have one string to tune. You won't be able to play along to songs that are tuned lower, but you'll still be playing the same song.

Learn barre chords, learn how to deal with the downtuning and continue naming the correct chord names, and you will be awesome.

Most bands that play in drop c aren't playing anything "light."

Why did you even mention their lyrical content?
For how can I give the King his place of worth above all else
when I spend my time striving to place the crown upon myself?

I play good-natured pop/rock in dropped A.

DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN (triplets, obviously)

"And you'll always be my lover..."

DUNDUNDUN DUNDUNDUN DUNDUNDUN DUNDUNDUN (gallops, obviously)

Queue 17/8 breakdown, followed by bass solo and 6-string sweeps (BLOOPBLOOPBLOOP) covering the whole fretboard.

"And we'll be together..."

*shift the key a semitone up*

"And we'll be together..."

*go for V-I cadence, but obviously end on the first inversion of I so the cadence is there, but not too perfect*

Thanks, man.

I like low tunings and catchy hooks, so I've been trying to marry them.

Anyway, TS: try Atreyu, Darkest Hour, As I Lay Dying, some Muse songs, pretty much most metalcore bands from around 2005, nowadays it's a bit lower. Also Deftones, White Pony era, and select songs afterwards. And Mastodon.
