I always like my tuning half a step down from standard, same applies for drop D tuning. What about y'all?

Girl (Ned/chav) annoying me on the bus.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Standard. Any drop tunings screw up your neck unless your guitar is specifically built for low tension string tunings.

It's just how wood and metal react to tension. It's basic stress/reactive impulse physics. Unless you're dealing with a titanium truss rod and a solid hickory neck, dramatic string tensions will warp your neck because of the inertia (resistance to change) of strings. Each string is pulling on your neck, and if you have drop-tuned strings that exert exponentially less tension than other strings, then your truss rod and your wood will warp and destroy your neck, creating fret buzz and incurable action problems. Certain guitars have specifically designed necks and truss rods that compensate for drop tunings, but other than that keeping your guitar in a non-standard tuning is detrimental to the life of the guitar.

I like Standard and Drop D, but also a Step down and Drop C. I don't really like 1/2 step down that much... If I'm daring I'll go down to Drop A.

Who cares? Me. Use the search function.

BTW: You joined March of 2007, that thread was made 09-14-2006. So yes, that thread did exist.

You have to make a few adjustments, but it by no means screws up your neck. Besides, when you use a drop tuning, you usually move to a higher gauge string, which has the effect of balancing the tension.

I started using Eb after playing some GnR covers...didn't sound right unless you put it on Eb tuning...


From then on, i really liked the of the tension and it sounds quite nice.
