Yeah, I think Nile is one of the only bands that makes good use of drop tuning.

Drop c# is a great tuning. you can use slightly heavy strings and it won't get muddy.

I listen to everything from Mastodon to Meshuggah, Mnemic, Martyr AD and old school shit like Nuclear Assault, Candle Mass, Savatage and Testament so keep your comments to your fucking self if someone likes something different than you ya fucking wannabe poser mother fuckers.

Don't forget Psycroptic!

I really don't understand how anyone can equate drop tuning with a lack of talent. What's the point in struggling with a fast sequence of chords (like the aforementioned intro to Churning The Maelstrom) when you can play it with ease by drop tuning? In my eyes, that's being smart not talentless.

Using Drop tuning isn't exactly talentless, only when a band is in drop tuning and they only play like 3 chords over and over again, no solos are anything. You really are talentless then.

GOD DAMN!! That's cool, variety is important. Random thought, does anyone here use open tunings? I thought that might be kinda funny.

You obviously haven't heard of the band called DEATH.

The most brilliant Death metal band, and you have forgotten them?! SHAME, SIR, SHAME!

This is another one of those threads that should just die...

i actually have used open tunings to write metal tunes, open D minor(DADADF, i think) , DADGAD is kinda open, i have used that for some celtic shit, open D modal, cant remember what that on is tuned to, but i remember the name.

opeth is working with some odd open tunings for their upcoming album

Shit I did forget Death. But I didn't say Nile was THE only band that makes good use of drop tuning, I meant one of few that do. Death included in that.

Nile uses Drop A tunning.

I mostly prefer either B or D tunning.

I change tunings a lot actually on my guitar...it often depends on the mood of the song I am writing.
It varies from C , A and even G sometimes...but then again that's only for the funeral songs

are you talking about drop tuning as in D A D G B E (or some variation of that), as death didn't drop tune, it was in D (D G C F A D) (which is 1 step down)

the way i see it there is nothing wrong with drop tuning, as you can get stuff out faster, as well as it being alot easier if you are doing vocals or whatever at the same time, just so long as you arent slack and all your songs are in 100Bpm and look like this:
Code:
|-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-5-5-------| |-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-5-5-------| |-0-0-0-0-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-5-5-5-----| harmonic^

and the chorus is just that backwards with distortion on
