Favorite alternative tunning
 
Whats everyones favorite alternative tunning?

mrweijia 2002-11-12 19:27

half a step down, so its Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, eb

alexguitargodbu 2002-11-12 19:53

didnt i just say that tuning down is the fucking devil?

D (one step down)

Sounds more brutal but not too much.. I love it for playing any kind of metal.. And all the old In Flames songs are in this tuning so I can play those!

CradleOfFilth 2002-11-12 21:31

I'm most of the times tuned in E or Eb, D too but sometimes i go to C#, C, B, A but I think it's too low
drop-D sucks, I never used/will use this tuning
tuning is not that important, playing good is:D

Well depending, that might fuck your guitar but....

important thing to remember to play grindcore : The lower, the better:)

I keep one guitar tuned to B so I can play anything from At The Gates :)

PantericA 2002-11-13 13:22

this isn't my favorite tuning or anything but has anyone ever heard of this tuning before - E-E-B-B-B-B (from low to high) now that's wacked! soundgarden used this, if anyone cares.

my fav. alternative tuning is Eb.:cool:

Def 2002-11-13 13:59

i remember one dude who tunes his guitar to D-B-D-D-B-B.

i like standard the best, E-A-D-G-B-E, tuned at 442.
i've also tuned to a C-chord before, E-C-E-G-C-E, its okay.
i don't like drop D because it suckie sound, and any lower
than a whole step down, i don't like.

I like tuning at a B or C.

Ohz 2002-11-16 07:56

How do you tune your guitar to sound like Slayer?

PantericA 2002-11-16 12:26

most slayer songs are in Eb.:cool:

yeah,thats right!:)

CtHuLhU DaWn 2002-11-16 18:50

I play Standard, fuck you All

Ben Wrangle 2002-11-17 12:17

i only use the standard tuning... first of all because i like it, and second because my guitar is a crap and always lost the tuning if tune lower than E

mrweijia 2002-11-17 12:30

my favourite tuning is standard, cuz i hate tuning down, but since the guy asked for alternate tuning, i'm picking 1/2 steps down, cuz thats closest to standard

Ben Wrangle 2002-11-17 14:42

yeah, i'm with you mrweijia, me too don't like tuning down..... it should be for that that my favorites Metal bands are the 80's bands.......

Def 2002-11-18 03:02

I stick to standard, but that's B for me :p

sevenstringstik 2002-11-19 12:08

i like Bb (Bb Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) :D
