Alright, so the point of this is to name your guitar, and tell what tuning you keep it in most of the time.

So here is mine

Gibson SG- Standard tuning or sometimes Eb

Epiphone Acoustic Electric-Db(makes the strings easier to push down because of extremely high action).

So what bout yall?

I have an Ovation I keep in standard tuning, which I sometimes tune down to drop D, and an old Martin X Series I keep in open D, which sometimes gets tuned up to DADGAD or down to open D minor.
Death to Ovation haters!
#5
Standard.

But I use Drop D and tuned to D sometimes, depends on song...
Obviously Drop D for say, A7X stuff but down a step to Cradle of Filth and the likes.
*shrugs* I don't know...

Schecter C-1+ - Standard
Fender Std. Strat - Drop 1/2 step
Schecter C-1+
Fender FM212R
Boss MD-2
A shitload of other pedals I never use.

Only funny thing in this whole thread.

Everything from E standard to 2 steps down. I play around with dropped tunings a lot.
#10
SG whole step down, for loose tension... i guess
Quote by tubab0y
Look at it this way- everyone rags on air guitar here because everyone can play guitar. If we were on a lawn mower forum, air guitar would be okay and they would ridicule air mowing.


#11

#12
6 stringers - E, D, C

7 stringers- B, F ( I use bass strings on the one tuned to F)

Bass - E or D

Yep. It was my birthday and I was wanking in my room and all of a sudden my whole family came jumping in yelling "SURPRISE!!" I guess they were the ones who ended up being surprised.
#21
Bass - standard
guitar - drop D almost always

i play a lot of blues and the like with my bass, so it's senseless to drop it, generally.

Yeah, on my other one I had .65 with a set of 11's for the other 6, tuned to A#.

Gigantic and beafy sounding. I'm broke at the moment and too lazy to put some like that back on. A# is my favorite of all tunings, usually play death metal with it.


Low tunings rule.
#29
i have a start which i keep in standerd and usually drop d and a seven string in drop c with an the 7th string at drop A and an ibanez at flat tuning like drop db

Out of tune.
I will show you something different from either

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust
#32
Warlock (Platinum) w/ the EMG's ---> Drop D
No-name fende rip off ---> Standard
Warlock (Bronze) w/ stock pickups ---> Drop B (B F# B E G# C#)
Acoustic (i have no clue what it is) ----> Db (easier to press down)
Flying V (emg) ---> Standard D
#35
dude i hate Drop D. it seems like every time i go to a guitar store i hear some lil punk playing something in drop D (which is really lame btw, and if you guys play in it all the time, you suck... period) and then when i go to grab a guitar off the wall it's always in drop D. **** that tuniing.

i will admit, i know a few songs in Drop D tuning, and have no prob tuning it down occasionaly, however, to the guys that sit there and play "metal" by tuning down the E string to D and doing those lame ass pointer finger bars all up and down the neck, you really suck at guitar. i mean dude, how hard can it be to actually play a G bar chord without actually tuning down to D?

o wait i kno, cause you suck.

not to be mean, but i hate that ****.


o and i always tune a half step down from standard. E flat. Hendrix style bitches. cause i can actually play my guitar.

^Ugh, Fruscianteac. You annoy me.
Drop tunings get a bad reputation because they're most popular by bands that have really simple riffs (a lot of pop stuff like Fall Out Boy, etc). But there's a lot of bands that use it to expand on what they can play. To change the overall sound of the music. It really opens a whole new page for you to work with.

Look at my sig, for example. That's something someone said about a song I wrote. I take great pride in that, because that's what I like about using Drop tunings, and it's why I still use them to this day.

dude cmon, you heard me say i tune down occasionally. i just hate the guys that play in it CONSTANTLY! i hate the guys that play Drop D bar chords in the progression of 3rd fret, 5th fret, 7, 8, 10, and 12 fret. that **** is just annoying as hell to me.

don't think i hate drop d. i just hate people that play those damn bar chords ALL THE TIME.

dude i can play better than you could ever imagine. flame me all you want. i play shows every week and i own. i can play lead riffs that you prob dream of playing. i'm good. not because i think i'm good, it's because people tell me i'm good.


and dude, frusciante is the man. sure, he's not some eddie van halen or marty friedman no technical speed demon, but dude, he can whale and he's a ****in SONGWRITER. he doesn't just play hot ass lead riffs, he plays entire songs. he's a really good guitarist. he has an amazing tone, and when he wants to rip it up he can. listen to the album blood,sugar,sex, magik and you would know that.


or, just listen to the solo on "she's only 18" offa stadium arcadium. if you tell me he can't play after that, you have no idea how to play guitar.
