#1 Do you always play in standard 440?
#2 Are there any natural open tunnings you like? Open D, G, Dm Ect.
#3 Is "Drop D" a helpful thing for beginners?

I play a mostly death metal style, so I use drop D and I tend to tune a half step to a whole step down for anything I play on the electric. For the accustic I'll use any tuning I think sounds cool, anything from open tunings to standard, and 440 to a whole step down/up. Just wondering what your thoughts on different tunings are.

I wrote: No, I don't think so.


I use to use a tuning like this for some heavy metal/grunge stuff:

6=C
5=G
4=D
3=G
2=B
1=E

Ummm, Why? Why? and...... Why?

I can see where you were going with that tuning, odd and intersting at the same time. I kinda wanted to get into a discussion on different tunning concepts and ideas since after all, this is a discussion forum.

I don't do much in altered tunings so I don't have much to say about it! Standard tuning goes a long way for me. Every so often I go into open G and Drop D for a song or two.

i would say (unless you are eather really really experienced with guitar) that using several different tunings would make learning to be proficient at guitar like 6times harder. seing as how you would have to adjust everything you know about guitar and music everytime you change tunings... but thats just me
