Personally I love drop D tuning for songs such as Killing in the Name and It's Dangerous Business Walking out your Front Door.

My Standard strat is set up for standard tuning though, and I often drop the E string for the tuning. Should I worry about about the neck on my guitar if I'm only droping the E string.

When I tune my Ibanez from drop C to sharp I always tune it down, because its bad for the neck ( I was told this since I use thick strings on my Ibanez, I love playing Heart Shaped Box and BYOB)

Will my neck be affected in a bad way if I leave it in drop D most of the time and don't tune it back. I've heard lack of tension can warp your neck too. It's only one string though.

maybe you should listen to sum disco ensemble songs, they're mostly playing in drop d^^

i do it a lot. ill be playin somethin and i forget to close my mouth... sometimes its really bad, slobber everywhere. i goes mostly over the neck, on the higher frets, and its really hard to get out from under the strings.

Ok thanks guys, lol. I'm just a little paranoid. Some ppl feed me false information and I always like to consider it just in case. I wanna get a guitar for flat standard tuning though. I hate how the strings get super lose when I play Rape Me and Sweet Child O Mine. Should I worry about tension for flat standard?

dont see it effecting the neck but ud be surprised how much tension is in just one string specially those low ones, just keep an eye on the neck if it starts to bow adjust accordingly

what happens if you tune down and leave it in Drop C all the time? Can that affect your neck?

Yah. I heard dropping can warp it the other way. I got an Ibanez with thicker strings for that tuning. It's nice having more than one guitar.
