What songs do you like to play that are in drop C?

I like to play Spiders and Toxicity by SOAD mostly, most of their songs are in that tuning tho..

A lot of the newer metal bands use that only though...or atleast metal influenced so they say...

a lot of the new "metal" bands (slipknot atreyu killswitch engage soad) etc use drop c, usually its easier just to play them in drop d and only retune 1 string instead of 6.

No, it's in straight C, with the same intervals as standard.

Am I right in thinking that Drop C is just standar tuning dropped down two entire steps, and drop B is Two entire steps but the lowest strings tuned to B?

It's a bit confusing as Drop D would suggest that it's an entire detuning of all strings when we know it's just the low string and then with the.... and .... erm...

God this is confusing!

No

Drop C is drop D tuned down one step

The E string is tuned down two steps to C and the rest are tuned down one step

In drop D the E string is tuned down one step and the rest are in standard

Playing in C is where all strings are tuned down 2 steps
Playing in D is where all strings are tuned down one step

A drop tuning is when the lowest E string is tuned lower than the other strings letting you hold a power chord with one finger

You were right about drop B - that is Drop D tuned down two steps i.e E is tuned down 3 steps and the rest of the strings are tuned down 2 steps

There is a tuning question thread in Basics check it out

Dream Theater either plays in standard or with a 7-string. At least from the tabs I've downloaded.

But Atreyu has some fun songs in Drop C. Right Side of the Bed is easy, Bleeding Mascara isnt too tough.

And Bad Horsie by Vai is Drop C as well. So is the rythm part for Building the Church.

As much as I hate to bring it up, most of the songs from Metallica's "St. Anger" are in drop C. Fun stuff to play, I guess; if you're into new Metallica.

what?? i can only think of songs off of train of thought that are in C, and it's definitely not drop C, its everything 2 steps down. they play mostly standard or 7-string (glass prison, dark eternal night, etc).

as far as drop C songs, lots of killswitch, some new ozzy stuff (I don't wanna stop )

???? have you got ears? none of the dream theater songs are in drop C, they are in C standard on the album 'Train of Thought' the rest of the time its majorly in standard or use a 7 string.

look into misery signals / killswitch
