This may be in the wrong place

Anyway, what tuning(s) do you use to write and play songs in for your band?

In my band, we tune to Drop D and Drop B (B F# B E G C)

Do tell...

My band uses all kinds of tunings. Mostly either Drop D or Drop B but we have a few songs here and there that are in Standard, Drop C or Drop C#

Standard, and proud. 'Tis a man's tuning. Don't need no fancy-shmancy tunings.

The guitars go in Drop D, The bassist in my band uses a 5 string tuned ADADG, and of course my synths are in standard
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

Standard, Drop D. Also, I'd probably use a Capo a bit

My band plays in drop D because the other guitar player is a stuborn jerk and won't play anything in standard even though I love standard. I also have a band for this summer program because there is a talent show and we(90% me) wrote a song in standard that is way better than anything my band has done, but the other guitar player and bass player have no commitment.

^Psh. Sonata Arctica and Meshuggah tune to should you!
Not really. Whatever tuning you like is just fine.

We're in Standard. I prefer down tunings (D, C#, C?B can be a bit too low sometimes...)
But as I'm only using FR-packed guitars these days...

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?
