Don't change your tunings too often, it will fuck up the neck of your guitar. It happened to me, and now I have to spend some $$$ to get it corrected again.

I'm pretty sure vulgar is Just downtuned (the whole guitar).
But don't qoute me

I really don't like floppy strings. I like my guitar with a little more higher action.

My band changes tuning a lot. I play a 6-string but the other guitarist uses a 7-string (though he rarely uses it) so I play in standard, drop-D, drop-C, and drop-B. A lot of guys i've noticed shit all over those who use drop tunings and say we have no talent. Well, one of the beauties of playing guitar is there are many ways to play one thing. If one way is easier, I'm gonna use it. My wrists are more important than there minds.

I use Standard or half step down(for stuff like slayer), but i mostly use a standard tuning. I have one of my guitars always set for half step and my other two for standard.

Yeah, that is a VERY bad thing to do. I know this from personal experience.

Back last summer, I used C# tuning, and every now and then Dropped it. Then I went to standard, which I liked, and then I got an idea... What would happen if I got a 7 string set, and put the lowest ones on my ESP? Now, I'm rather happy with my ESP and the whole B,E,A,D,F#,B tuning... That's Baritone, is it not? correct me if I'm wrong.

yeah, baritone isnt so much the tuning, but the guitar, baritones have longer scale lengths, but there are bands that use baritones for tuning to C standard, C# standard, A standard, but yes, B is the typical baritone tuning.

I use D on 2 six strings, E on a six string, a standard tuned 7-string, and I tune my 5-string to A. Just depends on the song!!

Eb

But if I was gonna change anytime soon, it'd probably be to D.

Drop tunings a pretty weak in my opinion...I can't see the point at all. Sure it may make some chords easier to play, butif they are to hard in the first place then you probably have to get better at guitar!

I dislike 'trends' in tuning too...bands who'd play in Drop D when it was cool, (you remember, when EVERYONE was doing, like when Pantera ruled the earth) and now a lot of NWOAHM bands won't pick up an axe unless it's below C.

I play in Eb cos I like the slightly darker sound it gives as opposed to standard tuning, yet it's not muddy and is good for high gain evil thrash.

(and yeh, I used to learn a lot of Slayer...)

Not necessarily, just consider the intro barage of Churning The Maelstrom by Nile to see what I mean. It's damn near impossible to play without drop tuning and one could certainly not consider either Karl or Dallas to be in need of more practise!
