That's all you'll get without using the right forum.

Delete this thread, then make one in the right forum.


Also, using Drop C tuning with every couple notes palm muted on the C makes a metalcore song.

As much as I like metalcore...


Play in drop C
Then use this riff on the low C String:


Chugga chugga chug chug chugga chug chug, with a few pinched harmonics here and there.


Don't forget to go from C-0-8-7-5-3-

That kinda chord progression

Nothing wrong with Drop C - it's the tuning of awesomePussies too scared to use C standard or Eb.

You are aware, that those two tunings aren't even really related? The only thing that remains the same is the low C.

Meh, if you can't play chords fast enough in C standard, just go drop B or something...
