Wow, thats a strange tuning. I'll have to try it out sometime. I thought it was just Bb standard, which is what I play in.

To all posters, this can be guaranteed to be correct, because John is in Fell Silent with Acle from Tesseract.

It's the tuning Browne mentioned above, but on Age of Deception and The Sleeper Must Awake the Bb string is dropped to Ab IIRC

The SS.org Tunings Thread

So, there seems to be a demand for a big-ass thread on band tunings. So, I decided to make a big-ass thread on tunings for different bands.

I copied and pasted the OP from the Metal Band tunings thread on Ultimate-Guitar.com

UG Community @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com - Tunings Thread REVISED EDITION! (IE: V3)

Quote:

So, I present...
The Metal Forum Tunings Thread


*Sup.1: Notes in square brackets are for variations with amounts of strings
*Sup 2: The previous note is now null and void as I've fixed the string amounts.
*Sup 3: As an extra note, I'm adding a list here at the top of band/album tunings we're searching for specifically.
*Sup 4: I'm adding in genres to each band. Genres will be taken from Metal-Archives. No arguing because I'll just ignore you.

Searching For:
Borknagar
Kathaarsys
Warning (Watching From a Distance in particular, but any would be good)
Negura Bunget (specifically, Om album)
Walknut
Arcturus (Now just looking for confirmation of their tuning on albums other than "The Sham Mirrors")
Ahab
Septic Flesh (specifically, Communion album)
Eyehategod

Animals as Leaders and Whitechapel use drop E on 8 strings, though I think AAL might have a low A also.

Dead By April use drop G on 6 string baritones and 8 strings tuned up.

Mastodon have also used drop C and D standard with a low A (which is why I want them to just man up and get 7s in A standard, would be epic).


Also don't forget drop Ab! Periphery

well no one actually knows the REAL ion dissonance tuning, so I'd take that off imo.

An also danza's tuning from low to high E B E B E F# B e (8 string) and 7 strings tuning were A E A D G B e for the first album and A E A D G B e (with hipshots set to f# or e for the 2nd album)

"from 2:08 - 2:30 i had goosebumps from 3:01 - 3:27 i wanted to punch the balls off of myself and kick my own teeth out."

this made me el oh el

hate to disagree with you bro, but. mushroomhead have never tuned to A. the xx cd and everthing before it is tuned to B standard at 435. XIII and savior sorrow are B flat tuned to 440

also wanted to add that iwrestledabearonce uses drop C on their 6ers for all their songs

They got a lot on that list wrong.. IE, Bruce Dickinson is listed under standard tuning. His most recent album is in Drop C, the album prior was in either Drop D or Drop A, and the album before that was Drop C as well. All previous albums were standard.
