Hooray for Non-Standard Tuning

For the last couple days (in between studying, of course...*cough*...), I've been experimenting with drop-D guitar tuning. I didn't know exactly what to expect, but...holy crap!!! It's frickin' awesome! You can play power chords with one frickin' finger, and it sounds heavier than standard.

As a real test of the tuning, I recorded a substantially abridged version of my all-time favorite song, "Downfall" by TRUSTcompany (although I think the actual song is tuned even lower than this). Check this out:


Seriously. Ryan, I don't know how often you stop by here, but if you happen to be reading...we have to do a cover of this song at some point. We've played it before, after all, and now we could use two guitars like TC did. Something to think about.

Oh, I'm here a lot. While I would rather play original music, we can make an exception for this song.
