I think your right, in dime's old riffer madness column in Guitar world, it said the song was recorded in d standard. DGCFAD.


As for Drop d riff's Tool 46&2 is one of my favourite's.

...And why would you want to do that?

Yeah, as other people have said, Killing in the Name and Walk are my favourites. Walk's simple yet brutal riff is pure heavy genius.

I like to add Unsung, In The Meantime and Diet Aftertaste, all by Helmet. Also Fat lip by Sum 41 and Wall of Jericho's entire With Devils Amongst Us All album.
Quote by lizarday
oh yeah? well larry king the slayer guitarist owns bc rich guitars. (i think)
#28
Just about anything by Tool.
Although this really comes down to taste.

Plus the fact that you can play about anything E-standard in drop-d, just play notes on the low E 2 frets higher... Quite obvious.
'Handy' for people with a floyd. Same goes for when you're tuned D-standard, just put a capo on the 2nd fret, and play all 2 frets higher.

Slither - Velvet Revolver
Come On Come In - Velvet Revolver

Any heavy riffs by Porcupine Tree are in Drop-D, but most of their earlier softer psychadelic stuff is in E.
