I want to build a repitoire of songs in a tuning other than E standard, but I don't know what bands use alternate tunings such as Drop C and D standard.

i know Children of Bodom uses both - What other bands use these two tunings?

Thanks for any help


edit - also, what are some relatively easy songs from any of the suggested bands?

What band doesnt use drop C or D standard...There's too many to list.

Mastodon- Blood & thunder is a fairly easy but cool/fun song in D standard

Any As I lay Dying is good/fun drop C

Children Of Bodom - Dropped C
Killswitch Engage - Dropped C
Nightwish - Dropped C

Bodom only uses drop C on a few songs from HCDR, and for every song on AYDY and Blooddrunk, everything else is D i think

SOAD, Necrophagist, Death, As Blood Runs Black, (Old) Job For A Cowboy, The Faceless, Bullet For My Valentine, (Newer) Slayer, The Agony Scene, COB, Darkest Hour, Belay My Last, Burning the Masses, Arsonists Get All The Girls...

All those off the top of my head, all use either D standard or Drop C, or both.

Oh and just to make sure... did COB switch back to D standard for Blooddrunk?

no i dont think so, still drop C

It seemed like they would since they were trying to sounds more like HCDR instead of their latest on AYDY... oh well.
