For acoustic, DADGAD is really fun to mess around in.

This should go in the electric guitar forum.

But anyways:
Standard tuning and drop d, just because the majority of songs is written in those tunings.

Open G
Oh, and DADGBD is fun also.

Standard Tuning.

I play blues and classic rock.

I like tuning down half a step, you can do just about anything as with standard tuning since I hardly ever use my last fret but I often like to throw in an open string or two while playing a little higher up and catch people of guard since you don't really hear that alot.

Seriously....I sounds soo perfect
You have play a D or C in that tuning....
My acoustic sounded like it had a built in chorus.
#17
I usually play in G#, but that's because I have a 7-string that I put in dropped C#.

#18
Eb. I use it for everything. Feels better than standard, and that half note actually opens some mid-range.
#19
Quote by the_strikes
Drop A#, don't ask me how I acheive this, because I'm not telling.

Thats lower than my alpha tuning....
Thats tuning e down 3 whole steps lol to get A#
#20
half step down.
it's cool for thrash and 80s metal
WONGA!

I would be angry too if there were turds on my head.
#21
Open G to mess around is funny.

I Used to play a lot of, Half-Step Down, because it's easier to get bigger bends...
#23
E for acoustic and for distortion either Drop Db or Drop C

C standard.

That's D standard a step down folks.

If you tune that way check out some Arch Enemy, and one of Dream Theater's albums is written in that.....but I cant remember the name........

Bowes SLx7

Washburn X40Pro
Washburn X50

#25
Eb or standard.

I leave a guitar in Eb in case I want to sing, I have a pretty limited vocal range.

Also, rather than retuning, a quick alternative is to just slap a capo onto the first fret of a guitar tuned to Eb. Insta-standard!
#26
G# standard for my bass
Open C major or Open Dminor for my electric/acoustic
Quote by valennic
C standard.

and 1 guitar in DADGBE

Drop B on the guitar is sometimes fun

Quote by RU Experienced?
Standard because I can't be arsed to keep changing my tuning. Is that the exciting and riveting answer you were hoping for?



the exact answer i was looking for, thanx
#35
Probably Eb.
Why? Dunno, just sounds better to me, and i enjoy it probably cos the strings are looser so its easier to play
#36
Drop C, because the looser strings just make it such a joy to play and you can create amazingly heavy riffs. Hand Of Blood by Bullet For My Valentine is also an extremely fun song to play and it's in Drop C.
Quote by J-Spoon
I did a forward roll into a backflip, caught the les paul and blasted out a face melting version of stairway to intimidate this mentally retarted kid on life support in a wheelchair that was trying to play it through an MG. What a loser.
#37
Your spelling and grammar offend me.
And to answer your question I always stay in standard, because I have this stupid floating trem on my guitar and I'm too lazy to change it. Besides that most songs I play can be converted to standard without too much hassle. Given the choice though I'd stick with Drop D, simply because of the vast range of songs written in it.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
