I usually play in E standard. Drop tunings are cool by yourself, but in a band I find myself fighting with the bassist. I also like to use half step down sometimes too.
bands/artists I've seen: Protest the Hero, LIGHTS, Andrew Bird, Flight of the Conchords, Incubus, Nine Inch Nails, Between the Buried and Me, Guthrie Govan, Cynic, The Devin Townsend Project, Scale the Summit, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Darkest Hour

Drop C and D standard. . . I hardly ever go lower anymore. Eh, about fighting with a bassist there are so many bands that are no where near that, unless the bassist starts playing around the 24th fret of his High G. . . or you are talking about Meshuggah. .. . Necrophagist, The Human Abstract, Children of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir(at times), Arch Enemy, etc. they don't have to compete with their bassists.

Metal, should kick you in the nuts, after you catch it messing around with your girlfriend.
and then make a sandwhich in your house and walk out.

i don't like anything lower than Bb. Anything below is just WAY to low. Besides. Thats what a bassist is for anyway

i like it in the the c standard tuning of the guitar, you can already play a lot songs with it.


ya..i agree with you...but you have to be a good guitarist to know a lot of songs in just one key...

E standard; makes playing all kinds of music easier.

Last time I tuned to drop D I was trying to play a Sonata by Bach
Martin D-15
