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!

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

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.
