Howdy, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I wasn't quite sure where to place it so I chose here :>

Currently learning the Motley Crue song Toast of the Town, and I can't for the life of me get it to sound correct. I'm sure it's not what i'm actually playing, but more of the tuning. My guitar is tuned perfectly to D standard, but what i'm playing sounds a little out of tune.

I'm wondering if maybe they tuned to D standard then maybe down 1/4 of a step or something? Cheers :>

Don't know the song, but maybe the recording has pitch issues.
For example, Rush's Xanadu is recorded somewhere between the key of E and Eb (if my memory serves me right), so it's annoying to play with the recording because it will sound dissonant in both keys.
