i've decided that my future in guitar playing and making my own music is all going to be in drop C, so now im looking for some more tabs in drop C. i like playing metalcore/hardcore music, and that's the kind of music im into making. Im not necessarily looking for popular songs as much as looking for songs with different and unique playing segments/breakdowns/riffs exc..

here's a few i play around with now a lot ...
anything August Burns Red
as i lay dying-forever & confined
saosin-i can tell
hatebreed-live for this
parkway drive-gimmie AD


but im open to hear any more ideas of tabs i should look at and are helpful in me developing more unique playing instead of just the bar chords, anything i hear inspires me

No....Pantera usually played 1/2 step down, standard, or drop-D, lol

Steve Vai's Bad Horsie, anything by SOAD, Modern day Slayer...specially Christ Illusion and God Hates us all, No More Tears by Ozzy can be played Drop-C since its orginally played in Db, Dream Theater...you can play stuff from em that's in C Standard in Drop-C.....I cant remember any others.
#5
Children of Bodom
Cradle of Filth
Shadows Fall
Black Label Society

Necrophagist doesn't use drop C, but they tune one step down. Close enough.

All the Killswitch Engage stuff is in drop-C.
As I see the ignorance of humanity engulfing reason and sanity like a wave of perpetual defeat and misery I ask myself, when the hell is everyone going to shut up and actually think?
#8
Ummm.... you can play any song in drop D in dropped C.

not many hardcore songs with the open C powerchords (CGC/CG powerchord on the top strings in the breakdowns. Most older stuff played in drop D can be played in C but alot of songs now have open C notes thrown into riffs, like..

definatly unearth. although there stuff on the new album is in dropped B dropped C will sound close enough.i say this because they have the best and most unique breakdowns of all the metalcore/post hardcore bands and there riffs are amazing

Atreyu is all in drop C (to the best of my knowledge), its also really fun to learn and play... learn all of the album "the curse" its great.

i would also recommend learning some Shadows Fall, off the album The War Within.

Metallica's experimental album, I still listen to it from time to time.
#22
^Experimental? No, it's just one of Metallica's BAD albums. There's a difference.

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?
#23
Oh my bad...I should edit that:

Metallica's "experimental" (james out of rehab being a fag, lars being a **** like always, Kirk out of touch and Trujillo who just joined the band) album....I listen to it from time to time.
