Iv always wondered why it is that all Guns n Roses songs are played a half step down. this really annoys me because i play a Strat with a tremolo bridge, this makes it really difficult to tune my guitar down, so can anyone tell me why do guns n roses play everything a half step down???

Screw you bitch!!!!!!!!!!

It's hard to tune down because when you change the tuning of the E or A string the whole guitar goes out of tune

Isn't it the opposite? It sounds scheisse to play regular tuning with Axl's voice?
Maybe you're right at least it has something to do with his singing...
Why is it hard to tune it down?... It's a guitar not drums.

The tension in the springs goes to hell when you tune down. It happens to me too.


You can just play their songs in standard with your band or move everything down a fret and sound like them.
