Okay, so I like to play metal, but every f*cking band has to play in a different tuning. Since I play an Ibanez with a floyd rose bridge, i have to spend at least half an hour to change my tuning. SO, i wanna know of some bands that play in Standard tuning at least MOST of the time... can anyone help me out?

Early Metallica (Kill->Black)

Most of it is in Standard. The only one i can think of that is not is 'The Thing that Should Not Be', which is in Drop D.

Megadeth does alot tuned down half a step too. Iron Maiden pretty much only uses standard, as far as i'm aware.

Pretty much any band from the NWOBHM that isn't Venom.

And of course Judas Priest, the first two Sabbath albums, Mercyful Fate, Dio...

Well if you want heavy in Standard, you need look no further than Judas Priest's Painkiller album.
Seriously.

Most 80s thrash is in standard.

And as we all know, that's the best kind of music If you need more modern stuff, check out Municipal Waste.

+1. How much heavier can you get than the title track, or Night Crawler, or Metal Meltdown.

Don't tune in standard, you pussy!

Real men tune to DGCFAD!

The only people who play in D are guys who need to compensate for their music's lack of awesomeness by tuning down and making it sound 'heavier'.

Anything higher then C is for pop.

If your a serious whammy user, then that's understandable. But if you barely use your whammy bar, then get some cards or something, and block your floating bridge so it can't move. I did it and tuning takes me seconds .

The Thing That Should Not Be is not in drop D.

Because Chuck and Muhammed are not awesome. GTFO my internets. You have defiled metal, you must die.


But seriously almost all thrash, Gwar, Barnes era CC, you can play Death and Necrophagist but they are supposed to be in D standard.

I've never tuned to E Standard in my life. I learned Master of puppets in dropped D. Got my stretching up a bit though so I can't complain.

Norther is all half a step down from E, at least the majority of it is.
