    Drop D and C tuning for Crust/Heavy stuff...

    Half step and full step fis usually used by Melodic Hardcore bands....

    then theres A tuning which I dont recommend you try unless you have plenty of spare strings...trust me, I broke like two strings once...

    Like probe said, go for drop d/c for the heavy sound
    @topicstarter: do you happen to be a fall of efrafa fan?:)

    I really like half-step down tuning personally.

    Yeah half step down is actually really handy, ' cause not only does it make your guitar sound deeper, it also makes playing the strings easier

    I've got a very bright guitar sound, and usually play standard tuning or Sonic Youth fucked up tunings, so i might not be the best for this

    But also, it's a good idea to buy broad and strong guitarstrings. Gives a darker tune. And then yeah, drop D for most classic crust-punk / HC stuff, and C if you want it really hard...

    possible dumb quesion; does half step down just mean half step down from standard E tuning in terms of the 1st string?

    @snookams, just tune all your strings half a step down, not only the first string

    I recently after about 6 years of guitar playing learned how to do power chords in drop d....bar chords! what a concept

    that is however with only your low 6th string tuned to D with the rest standard. sounds nice and brutal if you know what you're doing.

    haha in my opinion, power chords in drop D are way easier that standard tuning :)

    and also...if you want to mess around with tones and stuff, you can never go wrong with a capo ;)


    another thing...do you guys have electronic tuners? or do you tune by ear?

    i have a few guitars and tune them differently. im NEVER tuned prooperly, as in, never with a tuner or a piano note, so my guitars are all over the place
    the epiphone is standard tuning (that not the exact note). this guitar i use for my street punk stuff.
    my ibanez is drop d for my slayer typre stuff.
    my bc rich ( a 7 string) is really fucked up, i down tune the 6th string and 7th string. this is for death metal.

    Have four guitars
    i) Acoustic in standard
    ii) Electric in standard EADGBE
    iii) Electric in drop D, that is sixth string only in dropped down from E to D. DADGBE -three string power chords on bottom three strings are a doddle (1 finger)
    iv) Electric in drop C, that is drop sixth from E to D and then whole lot of strings (including sixth that had just been taken from E to D) down a full tone. Final tuning ends up with CGCFAD

    The electric standard uses D'Addario XL light gauge top and bottom strings while the drop C uses D'Addario XL medium top and heavy bottom.
    Use a electronic tuner for all.

    There are a lot of interesting tunings around. Jack Johnson uses something called slack-key which is from ki ho alu which means loosen the key in Hawaiian. The strings are loosened until when strummed open they form a chord. Such as a G major chord (this is called taro patch), the strings are D G D G B D. There is also G wahine which is based on a G7 chord and tunings are D G D F# B D. There is then D wahine D A D F# A C#. There is also Mauna loa tuning which is where the top two strings are tuned a fifth apart and usally require one or two fngers fretting to form a chord. Most common of this is C G E G A E.
