I was wondering of some good songs in drop B to learn. Nothing too hard, thanks.

Well Slipknot do easy songs in Drop B tuning, but Machine Head do better songs in the same tuning IMO. Also most damageplan songs were in Drop B...

Nah, that's just B tuning, not Dropped B.

There's a list of artists using Dropped B tuning on Wikipedia:

If you want some relatively easy songs, go for the "Sirens" album by It Dies Today.

Archetype can be played on a 7-string.

Anyways, all Machine Head from the Blackening. Excepts Aesthetics of Hate, that's in C#/Db Standard.

Skillet uses it alot. Just look up "Comatose" "Whispers In The Dark" or "Falling Inside The Black" to see if you like it.

if a neo nazi compares you to hitler I'd say it's meant to be a good thing, if a jew does the same thing, it's likely that they aren't particularly fond of you.

Almost all Slipknot songs are easy, and very straight forward.

Before I Forget, Sulfur, Spit it Out, Wait and Bleed, Sic, blah blah blah. They're also pretty easy to figure out by ear if you haven't done that before.

I think Amon Amarth tunes to Drop B.

You could also go to B standard (Tuning your guitar like a seven string) and play some seven string songs, like Trivium songs off of Shogun.
#33
well the only song i know how to play in drop b is before i forget from slipknot and thats easy as anthying to learn but if your looking for another good low tuning try drop c i dont wanna stop from ozzy is in drop c and it sounds great
