Hi. I had my bands fiirst practice today and when i got there was told i needed to tune my guitar to C. Its a death metal band so this made sense to me but im lead and im not into playing with everything tuned down i prefere normal E tuning because im acustomed to it. Will it make any difference if the rythm and lead guitars are in differernt tunings as long as we know what key were in and chords being played and such?
no..as long as you know the key u guys are in
Yeah as long as you're both playing the right notes everything should be cool. If you're tuning down to C you should look into getting heavier gauge strings and adjusting the truss rod. Go to your local guitar shop if you don't want to adjust if yourself.
