what are you guys favorite tunings...and y? :homer:

Dissection 2004-06-05 16:04

D. But I keep it in normal because my guitar teacher will have a fit.

I use my RP7 to de-tune it to D, though. But take it from me, you will fuck up your guitar if you are constantly chaning tunings. Pick one and stay with it.

c# and standard

Corpsevomit98 2004-06-05 17:08

Standard, D, and B. I use B for the sole reason that my band uses B and also when I am tabbing out songs from Amon Amarth, that is mostly their tuning.

MoonRaven 2004-06-05 17:09

standard, on both my 6 and 7 string guitars, its easier for playing with other people, since standard is the standard, plus its alot clearer sounding than with drop tunings.

One step down

younguitarist 2004-06-06 00:09

drop C# or Eb.

I personally like standard c and standard e tuning. I like C because I wanted to test out why all these bands were playing in it and that it is still clear and heavy at the same time. I like E because of lots of bands playing in it and I've really liked the sound I'm getting with it currently.

Eb, C#, and B. I have 3 guitars so it's easy.

EDIT: In standard intervals, I hate drop tuning.

BeastOfCarrion 2004-06-06 03:08

i play in drop C because im slack, and because its more meaty than drop D

Slabbefusk 2004-06-06 04:49

I play in standard E, ive tried all sorts of tunings , C#, drop B, drop C, Eb and i figured that its best to learn stuff in standard E tuning before you start exploring other tunings.

Undying_Hatred 2004-06-06 09:01

Standard, because Im now a faggot.

I play in D tuning because I like the way it sounds. A good balance between heaviness and tightness of strings.

A lot of bands make really lame use of drop tunings, but it can sound really cool. I think a lot of Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power is in drop D, and sounds heavy as fuck.

Dissection 2004-06-06 11:55

Can anyone tell me how to drop it to C? My tuners are all gay and don't tune in between tunings.

rapeandruin 2004-06-06 12:20

go buy a Korg Chromatic Tuner CA-30. It can pick up any note so you can easily tune to C. I believe they are like 30 bucks but they are well worth the purchase.

ShredIsNotDead 2004-06-06 12:37

I stay in standard and rarely ever learn stuff if its not in E tuning.

fatdanny 2004-06-06 16:33

I find with Eb you can use a 'pack 'o tens' and its not too tight. Plus i play along to slayer CDs alot.

I tune by ear these days. Tune it to a song on a CD, or if your guitar is in standard, tune your bottom E to C using the C on 3rd fret A-sting as an octave higher comparison. (if that makes sense)

Or buy a tuner that tells you what note your playing...

DeathCS 2004-06-06 17:29

On my main guitar, I tune to Eb.
Recently, I've been getting more and more into Nile so I set my Jackson up it to Drop A.

ramstien22 2004-06-06 18:26

on my 6 string i tune down to a c# and on my 7 string i tune it 1 step down :sickface:

andrewc 2004-06-08 01:31

whatever tuning the song is in.

it is an aboslute bitch tuning up and down but i have a good ear so it's fairly easy for me. :smash:
