    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

    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)

    Hope this helps some people out! Feel free to add more into this thread if you want!

    Rock on SS.org :hbang:

    EDIT:

    NOTE: Just to make sure everyone who contributed to the UG thread gets the proper credit, the ones I add from ss.org will be in bold :yesway:

    EDIT2:

    Mods, since I really wanna keep everything as accurate as possible, if you find something wrong, since I know ya'll have that power (yay mod squad!), feel free to edit my post for me :yesway: I'll do it, it's just, I'm a bit on the slower side of things, I'm on spring break right now :cool:
