Actually, I used to play in drop C, because I was a big system of a down fan. Now I play mostly in standard E but I'm interested in open tunings.
#5
I used to play in standard tuning exclusively, but now I play in E flat, because I find it has a more agressive sound.
#8
Usually standard or Eb.

Drop D very occasionally. But that's it.

this probally a stupid question, and i could probally figure it out by myself, but what fret do you put the capo on?

Standard wins! I may go to D standard when I get my 7 string though.

Drop C# looked pretty cool actually. I think Jeff Loomis has used it quite a bit.
#18
I can't really go into any alternate tunings on my main guitar because of Floyd Rose + locking nut. I'd like to play around with Drop C# or C#. It has a really cool sound, and it makes bands like Pantera, BTBAM, etc. sound awesome.

depends on what im doing. if im just jamming them im in standard E, drop D or drop B (BADGBe) if i'm singing/recording then i'll record somewhere betwen drop B and D standard since my voice is better suited to those keys. really though oftentimes its all over the place.

I mostly play in standard D on my 6 string. My 7 string is almost always in standard B tuning (BEADGbe).
#32
Poll needs a "multiple tunings" option.
E Standard, D Standard, Drop D, and occaisionally Open D Minor (D-A-D-F-A-d). Usually the two standard tunings, always with a set of 12s or 13s. When/if I get a baritone I'll probably tune it down a half step (Bb-Eb-Ab-Db-F-Bb)

no, exceptional skillz, practice and dedication to their instrument makes them sound awesome. c# just makes them sound lower.
#34
Usually standard here, sometimes drop D. I barely ever tune my guitar with a tuner though, so it might as well be D standard, or E# standard or something.

Well, when i first started, it was standard tuning, E A D B G E, but now it is drop c,
C G C F A D, because of all the good rock songs i like are drop c, like for example, BFMV!!! (Bullet for my Valentine), and TOAD, (Theory of a Deadman)
#40
standard.. just cuz i dont feel like tuning my acoustic to open.. i have other gutiars i could tune to open but i never use them.. but when i get my classical guitar i'll probably tune my steel string to open and see how it sounds/works.
