True this. Personally E Standard is my fave.

more heavier? shouldn't that be more heavy or just heavier?
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

Learn grammar.

Dropped D but like a whole octave lower. Try it. Might have to put bass strings on your guitar though.

Drop D or D Standard

tunings dont make you tone heavier.

is anyone going to actually answer this (it seems like a reasonable question - and i wouldnt mind hearing some opinions)??
#18
Technically d standard is a lower tuning.
I also don't see what peoples big problem with drop tunings are.
#19
then why does almost evey metal band and guitarist use drop tunings?
is it because Iommi did?
#20
D Standard > Drop D


But tuning really doesn't make you sound heavy. Its more Personal Preference or matching your singer to make it easier on his/her voice.

Moar like "Which grammar is more better?" am I right?!
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.
#23
D standard is obviously heavier. I really dont see the point of tuning further down than drop D when you could just go 7-strings.
Quote by Vornik
Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Good luck fitting bass strings in a guitar nut.

Drop tunings doesn't mean heaviness as said many times, so I'll pretend you asked differently, out of d standard and drop d i prefer d standard.

i think D standart is pretty heavy. it's heavier than E standart or Drop D because it lowers the strings and you get a higher amplitude with your strings. that means more induction, more electricity more power. easy as that, and i think you can really hear that
#29
E standard is all you need..

Tuned half a step down is my favourite for soloing, but I usually use E-standard because if you know how to play you can be as heavy as you want.

i won't even try and be witty, **** this thread.

for one, heaviness isnt a product of tuning but a product of tone and what you're actually playing.

but if you wanna take the shortcut, by all means just tune your guitar down even though you don't know why other than, "it'll make it heavier"
#38
slipknot made drop b or whatever there tuning was (back there) sound funky in Bitchslap. (I think this is a non-album song or something like this... ^^")
They also played something like little blues riffs in between the damn heavy parts.

So D standard is just lower... doesn't have to be heavier.
