As the title says, post your favorite non-E-standard tuning! also list any songs you know of in that tuning.

If man is 5, if man is 5, if man is 5,
then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, the Devil is 6,
And if the Devil is 6,

then God is 7, then God is 7, then God is 7

I like the tuning to "When the Levee Breaks."

I thinks it's an open slide tuning. Something like xxCAFC?

D A# D G# is my personal fave bass tuning....there are a whole heap of songs which use this tuning. Muse's Time Is Running Out is a good example.

Eb is the sexiest, followed by C#.

Both are standard tunings. Hence, C standard, and Eb standard.

Whoops, my mistake.

I thought he meant other than E Standard.

DADGGD or something like that. I remember I could get some really cool drones on the D strings and play octave/doubled melodies on top with the A and unison B's. The higher G was a little flabby though .

The only songs I know by them are "Long Way Down," "Iris," "Sympathy" and "Slide."

You've reminded me - I need to go learn "Hope."
#33
some of my favorites are:

DADGBE (commonly referred to as drop d)
CGCGBE (my drop c, i'm too lazy to detune the first three strings)
BF#BGBE (occasionally, my drop b. again, too lazy to detune first three strings)

i don't like half step down tunings for some reason. i don't know why.

EDIT: one time i tuned down my guitar to EEEEEE. it sounded really weird. the top strings were easier to bend, though.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Drop D is my personal fave; but I like Drop B as well, for some Chevelle licks.

Yes, it is incredibly inconvenient and bad sounding. But it's awesome.
