Okay, I didn't know where to put this thread, so, I'm torn between using D Standard or E standard for my own stuff. Can you guys/gals give me any pros/cons of using D standard for progressive extreme metal?
The only things I can think of are:
D - Pro: gives more 'chunk', Cons: loss of two notes (nothing major)
E - Pro: all 'usual' notes, Cons: doesn't give that satisfying thud or chunk that D has

Any ideas at all would be much appreciated

cuz ppl hate how power metal they are cuz they think its "gay" or w.e, which is immature and dirogitory
go d standard, for the balls. Theres really not too many pros/cons for using different tunings...
