Velvet Does some drop D too, but most of Slash's stuff is half down.
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

i play all my songs in Eb standard now. if you just keep it down it all sounds natural, better in my opinion. some songs sound awkward at first, but play throught them a few times and they'll be fine.
my gear:
gibson les paul classic
epiphoen les paul standard
fender standard fat strat
peavey valveking 112

smoke, you get more awesome by the minute..... You have an epic beard, live near woods, listen to metal, grill stuff using makeshift bbqs out of old cans, and now we find out you have stabbed someone in the dick

I'm probably going to get flamed for mentioning the band but...AFI
I know their new stuff sucks but their old stuff isn't bad.
Quote by J-Spoon
I did a forward roll into a backflip, caught the les paul and blasted out a face melting version of stairway to intimidate this mentally retarted kid on life support in a wheelchair that was trying to play it through an MG. What a loser.

Oh, what the hell. A lot of blues, like stevie ray vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. Makes bending easier.

hmm i've heard it several times... i guess it's not that common? :/


I'm pretty sure I've heard it too.

To answer the thread, Smashing Pumpkins have a lot of 1/2 step down stuff.

Hey y'all!!! Me and my friend were over at her house. I we were wonder what guys think when they see a hot girl at the mall or whatever walk by. (We're both pretty as y'all would say "blonde" sometimes).

Oh my god theres nothing more annoying then half step down tuning... I put my iPod on shuffle and sit with my guitar in my lap posting on UG and playing along to the songs I know and suddenly something comes along that can only be feasibly played in Hendrix Tuning and I can hardly do anything. LAAME...
