I am aware of who Carcass is, but I've never really listened to their music except maybe 1 or 2 songs. But a couple of days ago, I pick up the latest GUITARWORLD and I see a picture of three members of Carcass lying dead on a table being chopped up with a cleaver which is what caught my eye in the first place. The article starts out saying "Forget about Led Zeppelin and Van Halen. To anyone who ever tuned a guitar down to drop Z" and then it just talks about a Carcass reunion. Is there really a drop z tuning?

I do think it is a rather suspect sound of metal dildos and horses.

what you need to do is have an input jack on your neck. then you plug your guitar into your amp, and the output of your amp back into your neck part of your guitar. this will create a musical vortex to which you will be able to reach a different parallel universe where drop Z tuning is possible... just be careful not to get to drop X tuning first or you will get sucked back into that dimension forever.

Notes in a scale the English music world

A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G#
Notice a Z?
No?
Gooood.
edit: because I felt "scale" was too specific.

Even if there was a drop Z, the string would be so loose it would be unintelligible...

B standard as I remember, I used to play their music in college with an old Vester strat copy, Jazz guage strings tuned down to B.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

That all depends on the string gauge and neck scale.

What the hell? 12 notes in music, A-G (+Flats/sharps), no Z.

12 equal temperments in the Diatonic scale, not in all music. There are other microtonal scales, and there actually might be a Z. But as my new sig suggests, it's a dangerous process to get there.

Drop Z? thats not a real note dumbass.

Sorry, I just thought i'd repeat the same fucking sentiment in nearly every goddamn post previous to this just to reinforce the point. Because 30 posts of insulting someones absent-mindedness clearly isn't enough to hammer it home.
