Protest are NOW using Eb for their 'Fortress' stuff, but almost everything on 'Kezia' was Drop-Db and I have no clue about 'A Calculated Use of Sound'

Nightwish are so not Drop C... They can't be. Now I don't know any Nightwish songs but everytime I jam to them, the lowest they go is D.

SYL is open C Maj so with the low G its G, C, G, C, G, C, E

Devin now uses open B for the Devin Townsend Project so presume his 7 starts on F?

The little project I'm doing with Eric Ellis is gonna be like a djenty Deftones/Soilwork type thing.

We'll be using:

Viper 407 in Drop G
SC607b in Standard
SC607b in EAEADGB
SC608b in DADADGBE

It's gonna be fun.

This also isn't true. Some of the songs off "Once" are in Drop C, such as "Wish I Had An Angel" and "Dead Gardens" - they're few and far between but they are there. Most of it is Standard tuning though.

Parkway Drive (Aussie Metal Core) - Dropped B
Protest the Hero (mathcore) - Eb standard, a few songs (e.g. divine suicide of K, heretics and killers) are in Dropped C#
Asking Alexandria (UK Metalcore/Techno) - Dropped D

Turns out that was actually a bullshit tuning I found, althought they may have used it but it wasn't from what I was thinking (Teen Age Riot).

Some of the tunings they've used

E-B-G-D-G-E (actual Teen Age Riot tuning)
D-E-G-D-E-G (Tunic)
G-G-D-D-G-G (usually the rhythm guitarist uses this)
B-E-F#-F#-F#-F# (Kool Thing)

As you can see, really ....ed up shit and people have reported them bringing up to 50 guitars to shows!

I've been working out "Dehumanization" by Whitechapel and it has to be in EAEADGBE on 8 string if you want to play it correctly. Plus watching their studio video, they play the low breakdown's tritone chords as you would in drop A. I could be wrong, but it makes a lot of sense to play it that way.

I am lead to believe Septicflesh's "Communion" is the same tuning as the other albums.
