When people say Drop C, they don't actually mean Drop C, which would be CADGBE.

They actually mean is "Dropped D Tuned Down One Whole Step," or CGCFAD.

I wondered why Atreyu songs sounded weird when I played them.

But I thought 'Nah, forget it - Yo, home to Bel-Air!'

In 3ish years of playing, I have never attempted to learn or play a song in Drop C until tonight.
#18
I normally say Drop C and explain that I mean down a whole step and then do the equivalent of Drop D

Except that's not C standard. C standard is E standard all strings down 3 half steps.

Crap, I meant to write C standard but I was talking to someone as I typed that and I'm not used to typing the notes for C standard thus I wrote the last notes as E standard. You know what I mean.

I don't see why everybody is being cruel about this. 'Drop C' meaning CGCFAD isn't very accurate, as surely the name should show the deviation from standard tuning.

To be honest, you were all insulting the TS completely unnecessarily and ignoring the fact that their logic in the matter was impeccable, and that 'Drop C' is a poor name for the tuning it refers to.

To the guy above: Don't be so close-minded. Just because you don't like to use a tuning doesn't make it stupid. All tunings are useful for different occasions and purposes. What is wrong with all of you?

Too true. It doesn't have to be low to be heavy. It can be plenty heavy enough in standard!

I believe the guitarist also removes two strings, but may be wrong about that.
