Most Rage Against The Machine stuff is drop d, most famously Killing in the name. But it depends on your style and the music you listen to.

that song's quite easy, it's the same chord progression for the preverse, verse (palm muted), and the chorus...which is basically the entire song, a few parts that aren't...just like 2 though, fun to play too

I have always played it in Drop D. Everyone else who I've seen play it plays it in Drop D.

To Threadstarter: Regardless, it's a good song and not too difficult to play. Give it a shot!

"The Thing That Should Not Be", the third track, was written by Lars Ulrich and myself. It is the first Metallica song we have written in an alternate guitar tuning; it has every guitar string tuned down a full tone, from E standard to D standard.-James Hetfield. guitar world 1995. he was talking about the 10th anniversary of MoP. im just sayin. but to TS. it can be played in drop d. sounds like you can use the tabs that are on this site.

the majority (if not all) of second stage turbine from coheed is drop D,
and theres a healthy mix of genraes on there.
time consumer is defintly a winner.


intro is possibly difficult though...maybe the bridge

33 is an awesome song...pretty easy too, can be played in standard though but i think Co&Ca play it in drop d to make it easier on the fingers
