Would you think its healthy to play a guitar in drop c tuning straight after changing strings?


Personally I think not such a good idea?


Or moreover, how long would you play it in standard before tuning it down?

its really not going to make much of a difference, the string tension difference is nominal.... i assume you're worried about warping?

Dunno.

Just seems asking a bit much from the guitar.


I noticed in standard I hear a bit of fuzz from the E & A strings bouncing off frets right after changing them, playing acoustically, but that goes away over time I've experienced.

So I was just thinking drop C would make it worse.


Either that or I'm doing it wrong.

There's nothing wrong with going straight to drop C...thats basically the only tuning I use...the fret buzz could be from your action being set for standard tuning...I had to raise mine some b/c the strings are looser and more likely to hit the fretboard

its made of wood.. not porcelain.

it won't crumble to pieces under a bit of different tension

i hope you know that you're really supposed to set up your guitar and re-intonate it for every different tuning for optimum playing and performance....it wouldnt be "bad" but its not going to feel right/might be a little loose
