Youre' going to drop the low to A#. Thats how they tune it, and if its too loose, then get a thicker guage of strings. Hope this helped.

My things:
Bowes SLx7
Washburn WG587
Washburn X40Pro
Washburn X50
Washburn HM24
Washburn WR150
Laguna LE200s
Arietta Acoustic
First Act
Valveking 112
VHT Deliverance

agree with the above loosen and and use a thicker string guage what i did and worked wonders for the drop tuned sound

you should invest in a chromatic tuner if you don't have one.

Enjoy my tab (as theyre the only ones on the site), and good luck.
Also try my Vanishing Light tab.

Also, A Bit of advice, Don't bother tuning back up, it'll only break your strings regardless.



EDIT: ^I think its pretty much figured out buddy. You're a bit too late.

Yeah but considering the TS, tuned UP to A# in the first place i thought i may enlist in the actual notes that were the tuning

not really, but if u tune quite a few times the likely hood of string brackage increases dramatically,

i can down tune and retune probably on average 4-5 times before one lil soldier would cark it

wait, In Flames is a heavy band with a really low sound, how could this even be a question?
