Hello

As for the begining im pretty curious if there are bands that play rock in lowered tuning. Found QOTSA And Sick Puupies for e.g PLay In C standard. How about playing rock lower than usual? I think it might be fun. Any thoughts


P.s not djent, it gai

Breaking Benjamin plays a lot in Drop B flat, Chevelle uses Drop B and B flat as well (both use multiple tunings depending on the song/album)

Not many bands play below C. With the tuning below C there isn’t enough string tension and that damages the neck so it’s not safe to tune that low.

That is total bullshit

But I don't like tuning below D standard. I used drop C for a while in my prog band and I absolutely hated it. Way too much lowend from the guitars for my taste. But as for ruining my guitar because of it, no it will not.

I keep one of my guitars in B or Drop C depending on my mood. Threw some 12s on it and it works great.
Also, the "damage your neck" BS is funny. Too little tension will not damage it. Too much, maybe, but I think your strings would break before the neck had problems.
