HARD standard tuning...

i know there have been lots of threadsabout "what bands use standard" but i have already played most of them at least once... i need something harder...

what are some hard standard tuning songs? (not like Steve Vai hard but harder than Slayer/Megadeth etc...)

Harder than Megadeth? The tracks in Rust in Peace should be challenging...

Anything with lots of solos, man. Go for Malmsteen, Vai, and pretty much anything with constant fretboard masturbation.

Some Iced Earth tracks are hard, but I think they use Eb if I'm not mistaken.

I got a question about a tuning...

what is BADGBe It makes power chords octaves on the top string. I know Dime and Zakk use this tuning for some of their tunes. Does it have a specific name or is it like Standard Drop B or something like that?

just drop B, fret the 2nd fret on the A string and tune like you would with drop D whe suing your ear. I use it all the time on my guitar with zakk wylde strings.

Well, it's not metal, but Pearl Jam used standard E a lot, not sure on which songs though. Maybe some melodic Immortal stuff is a bit tricky. Simple riffs, but you have to tremolo pick like a motherfucker...

I beleive Lamb of God use DADGBE, which is basically standard E except for the 6th string which is tuned down a whole step. I think Immortal also used this tuning on their last album.

Ensiferum songs are pretty fast and tricky, they use standard E. Maybe you could do us all a favor and try to tab "Iron". :P

If you don't mind tuning down a half-step(not sure why you would, cuz many Slayer and 'deth songs are in Eb), I suggest you try some Morbid Angel. Stuff from albums like Altars of Madness, Blessed Are the Sick, and Formulas Fatal to the Flesh. That last one has some rather challenging riffs.

Dream Theatre and Opeth use E, right? Give that shit a shot.

Edit: Of course, you can't forget Judas Priest, Halford, and old Pantera.

You can also order Martyr's tab books from their website, tabbed by themselves.

The Black Dahlia Murder...although they are in C standard tuning...they are still standard...might be off a by notes...but hell that isn't always the point of playing is it? If you can master those riffs in the correct/wrong tuning then if you do go to C tuning you got it mastered already.

Old Man's Child has some sweet songs...i don't know about "HARD," But cool.

Download Powertab, download any hard song in any tuning, and change the tuning to E in the program.

You can play pretty much everything that way, to practice.

The best recomendations so far in this thread.

However, Theory In Practice are in Eb, not E.

What about early Malevolent Creation or Demolition Hammer? Should be in standard-tuning, don't know if you will find it hard to play.
