Drop A, and stock E w/ B
I switch between that and FAGFACE.
Sometimes I also use CABBAGE.
...But no, drop Ab is the favorite so far.
I tried to tune my Carvin in drop A but I wasn't happy with the low string tension as the Sperzels won't allow me to use a gauge thicker than 60 So I went back to standard....
One of my 7's is tuned like a normal guitar, but a half-step down (BEADGBE) and the other is tuned a half step down but the bottom two strings are tuned in fifths. (GDADGBE)
Drop C with a low G (GCGCFAd), sometimes tuning the low C up to D when playing standard tuning songs. Love it!
i use Drop G/Ab and A
I haven't found which one i should use but i keep moving around finding whats best...
When i get a 10 string i plan on using FAGEDFACE (Drop Z Tuning)
In all seriousness 10 strings are to much for me XD
On my Mayones I used to play Drop G#. I like this tuning because a low G# has almost an 8-stringy sound, but I still have the Eb tuning which is pretty much "standard"/can be used for many non-djent songs.
exactly why i liked G#. Not only that i can still use the new standard tuning on a 8 string with a low Eb. Having me play in Drop G defeats the purpose of me getting a 8 string
I mean i heard Tiger was played on a 8 till i saw that misha said it was on a 7 then i realize i truely love G#
90% of the time I'm using the Standard tuning.
Sometimes I use also (for ambient music):
A# - F - A# - D# - F - a# - d#
B standard, but Im currently in a jazz/neo soul group, so standard tunings almost ALWAYS apply. In the past I used Bb standard just so it wasnt in a standard tuning (metal).
So, just a question. what tuning could i use for my 7 when my band drops to drop b? (B,F#,b, E, G#, C#) i want to start using my seven string so i can do some stuff with the extra octave and a half but the other guitarist doesn't want to tune up. I'm kinda stuck i would like to have the drop b tuning on regular starting on the low B string and then have the extra string that would go in the sequence like the one about ^^
standard on all of them but the RGD which is a whole step down form standard.
