Lots of Black Sabbath songs. I cant think of many off the top of my head.

I know Sabbath Bloody Sabbath uses this tuning as well as A National Acrobat.
My guitar is not a thing. It is an extension of myself. It is who i am.

system of a down does some- you dont really see this tuning too often tho its usually drop-d drop-c or just down a half step
It's a man's obligation to stick his boneration in a women's separation; this sort of penetration will increase the population of the younger generation.

a perfect circle, all of their songs is tuned that way

voodoo child - jimi hendrix (good song by a crap guitarist)
nothing else matters - metalica (closest they'll ever come to true metal)
can't stop - rhcp (john is not god)
fix you - coldplay (the shredding is top)

^ They are just in drop D now on AYDY


Also, you have your tuning wrong, the 1st string should also be C sharp if that wasn't a typo.

You can play any song in any standard tuning in that.

There's no law that says you need to play in the same key as the original version of the song.

I assume he knows that....


Still, a key change can sound odd.

Between The Buried and Me is tuned to that, and A Perfect Circle isn't, they're just tuned a whole step down to D standard.
#15
actually i was playing crazy train in it but the solo just seemed odd and out of place with the new tuning....but the rhythm did sound very good just the solo lacked the intensity that it originally had....now a good song i came across was floods from pantera what a great song and its in that tuning too

I think, and I could be wrong, that Warren Haynes of Gov't Mule uses C# tuning occasionally. I couldn't tell you any specific songs, though.

Some Guns 'n' Roses songs are tuned down halfstep or wholestep.

Pantera's Great Southern Trendkill album (or at least most of it) is in C# tuning.
