    Jed didn't like using 7 strings. He used the low G on LTD Eclipses. 24.75 inch scale and low G were a pain to tune and think of that guy's picking attack. He used .60 gauge for the low G, same with Dev, but he was playing on an LTD SC607B at 27 inch scale with a .60.

    Fear Factory used low G when Christian was on guitar too.

    I know Dino went down to G on a couple of their bonus tracks, on which songs did Christian go to down on G?

    I think Jed had a baritone for songs off The New Black. In the Download Festival live video you can see him switch guitars and the scale length definitely looks longer

    Whitechapel's S/T, The Saw is the Law, and Mark of the Blade all have songs with Drop G tuning as far as I can remember. Also, virtually all of our (One Minute Winter) new songs ever since the stuff from The Light LP are all in Drop G.

    I just found out Jason Richardson's Fragments is also in Drop G. Might be a good idea to check that out.

    Oh my, sorry, did I say The Saw is the Law?! I actually meant the Our Endless War album! The Saw is the Law and Our Endless War both are in Drop G, not sure about the other ones. Again, though, One Minute Winter (my band) has about 4 or 5 songs in Drop G as of late, and that number is increasing very soon.
