Pfft. That's nothing.


Should hear Meshuggah's tuning from Stengah.

F# standard with the bottom string on E.

And that's an octave BELOW E :)

Mastodon uses drop B occasionally, most notably, "March of the Fire Ants" and "Iron Tusk."

Actually, Iron Tusk is a step down on all the strings except for the lowest string, which is tuned to A

And if you aren't already in Drop B, tune to C# standard instead and learn All Bodies \m/

Meshuggah play 8 string guitars and then tune down even more, thats pretty damn low :thumb: there song war or anything off catch33 sound like the strings are going to fall off the neck. wicked band though.

Haha yes, do what this man says, although yes, you probably will have a hard time finding a good tab, but I think I've seen one before, can't remember where though.

Wow this dude comes in asking for songs in drop-B and you guys have given him just about everything but that

i know 30/30/150 by stone sour is but you said no slipknot and that sort of classes as slipknot. but still good.

i may be being really naive, but what really is th epoint in tuning down so low, the guitar and bass in standard tuning fit together perfectly. like when you start tuning down what role is the bass playing- most of it's inaudible cos its so low.

because most death metal singer sing... äh... growls very deep...

imagine someone growling "grrrooooaawwrr" and the guitar is in e-standard
imagine someone growling "grrrooooaawwrr" and the guitar is in b-standard

what will sound better?

btw. it sound more "evil" and "dark" when the guitar is tuned low

Yeah, but with deep, it's better to tune your guitar up. If you listen to some Smiths songs, you'll see how it's applied.

Only on the latest release.

But apart from that they don't use 'drop' tunings.

Esp Griffyn
08-30-2006, 08:04 AM
I think some Soilwork tracks are in Drop B

They use B standard on 6 string, they might as well just get 7 strings.

does this guy mean now:

B E A D F# B
or
B F# B E G# C# ?

Why in the world would you tune like that?

Maybe because technically that's what Drop B actually is :thumb:
ah, k.

Squirrel
08-30-2006, 08:16 AM

It's Drop D: Down one and a half steps.

Just like 'Drop D', but lower on all strings.

Kataklysm use Drop D down 1.5 steps, which I assume you meant by drop B. I don't know, though, I could only find a couple tabs by them. Check out in Shadows and Dust. It's a pretty cool song and pretty easy.

Prison Sex, Parabol and Parabola by Tool are in drop B.

Tom Morello likes to play in drop A a lot, think Calm Like a Bomb.

unless you have a 7 string, try This Dying Soul by Dream Theater

You're crazy. Never try a 7 string song on a down/drop tuned 6 string, especially Dream Theater. It makes things funky on the upper strings.
