    well i've now figured out that at shows alexi's black guitar = D standard, and his white guitar = drop C. not that i'm pissed or anything, but i liked the standard, it was more challenging. all the new album is in drop, so the powerchords are just 1 finger. wondering if any other guitarists agree or disagree?:err:

    I'm sorry, I'm trying to think of somthing to say to this, I'm finding it difficult.

    I wasnt to say somthing like "NO SHIT" or "Woah Captain Obvious arived", but its just not enough. Also, Sixpounder and (I Think) Angels dont kill are also in Dropped C.

    WOAH I just figured out their first album was Db! IT ONLY TOOK ME 9 YEARS

    You seriously JUST figured this out now?
    Its like making a post saying "well i've now figured out the world is round".

    P.S. I hate dropped C

    my band often switch between a step down standard and drop C and we dont have a problem with it... we just use different tunings for different songs becuase sometimes a song might sound better or play easier in a ceratin tuning.

    I don't think it is, you can hear as low C a few seconds in.

    All of AYDY album is in Dropped C. Most of their older stuff is D standard, with some eceptions (6 pounder being one, in Drop C) and Db sometimes as was said.

    My band currently plays in C standard, and we regularily now do drop Bb (A#). My 7 string is currently tunred to B, but I am going to put it into Bb, because I'm on a fat Nevermore crave lately.

    Lots of people like being able to use drop tuning becaues of being able to make quick power chord movements on low end. But, I say away from detuning at all, sometimes I'll write some stuff in Drop D, but I don't think it's necessary to detune anymore.

    i like writing in drop C sometimes because it sounds heavier, but also sometimes becasue it just fits the song better

    ^I use it sometimes on MSN, and I've seen someone with a button of it :D

    I reaallyy hate Dropping doen below D standard. Its fucking useless. You dont need to drop down to fucking B to be heavy. If you cant sound heavy in standard tuning, you arn't doing it right. I tune in D standard because I play alot of songs in that tuning and my guitarist likes it, so we keep it.

    Db and C# are the same note so it doesnt matter what you call it, i also have alsways called it Db....

    Having played a few models by both jackson and ESP, i prefer the jackson's, maybe because i own to and just prefer the familiar, but i really like the jacksons, maybe post yor questionj in musician discussion, probably get a more in depth answer...
