dropped c definitely

i use 10's....they dont lose tone from being that low but if you go higher in gauge you will definitely get a heavier sound

I suggest buying really heavy strings (.11,.48/.50) and tuning down to C or B. Anything high than C# wouldn't suit deathcore that much. You'd probably sound like Nickelback or Seether.

I wasn't, I was just stating that because Nickelback use drop D a lot. Or it least it sounds like it to me. I like them, I'm not dissing them.

So when you do a drop tuning, how do you adjust your playing and chords? Or do you just play the same and go fot it? I don't really understand the non-open tunings I guess. I play a little slide in open D and G so I sort of understand...but not really.

While GS124 was correct in what he wrote, I don't think he addressed the question. I think tsb is confused about drop tuning and how it relates to playing chords primarily, whether it is open chords or barre chords. From what I understand (someone correct me if I am wrong, I could be way off base and won't take offense in any correction), you don't really use drop tunings and play chords. You could, sure, but you would have to adjust your finger positions. I suppose you could play barre chords and simply mute the top string, that would work.

One thing that I notice with drop tunings is that power "chords" are now simply the top 3 strings of the guitar, same fret, since the note on the top string (low "E" or "D" or "C", whatever) is now lowered by a whole tone.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong. I very likely could be here, just going off of what I have thought when I watch people play.

Everybody seems to have a tip jar in my area. I never get a Nickelback...I put it in the jar. There are always little signs on the tip jar that try to make you feel cheap if you don't tip.

It's just like you say Btimm. You need only to adjust your fingerings. Sorry I had to delete my post, but you pretty much covered it anyhow.
Dropped tuning don't change a thing except available pitches and fingering.

Rock on!

here is a list of my dropped tuning chords

they are all movable so i will just pick some random ass frets for the chords



E|----|
B|----|
G|----|
D|3---| F5
A|3---|
D|3---|

E|----|
B|----|
G|4---|
D|5---| GMaj
A|5---|
D|5---|

E|---- ----| the not on the Gstring is the root which gives it
B|---- ----| a fuller sound
G|9---or 9---| EMaj with root on the 5th string---the
D|6--- 9---| second one has the 5th added in to it
A|7--- 7---|
D|6--- 6---|

E|----|
B|----|
G|5---| F# Dim w/ root on the 4th string
D|4---|
A|6---|
E|7---|

E|----|
B|----|
G|3---| AMin
D|5---|
A|5---|
E|5---|



some of the chord names might be wrong in terms of the root note but the type of chord is correct......these are just a few examples of the chords that i use when im in dropped tuning

@GS i mad up my own tuning before and it sounded cool....i still have it if anyone wants to try it out

just expirement with that tuning you might find something yo like

There is a cool looking capo that has individual pads so you can set interesting tunings without messing with the neck tension too much. I guess since it's a capo it wouldn't work too great for dropping tunings, now that I think of it.


Partial Capos

I've heard they were called "Spider Capos" or something like that. They seem pretty cool.
