What tuning do you use the most?

SixStringSavior

what guitar tuning do you use the most when ou play or write songs on guitar or bass. Standard,Drop D,Drop C, or other. (if other specify what tuning you use.)

I tend to use standard and drop d the most. overall i use standard the most though because its the easist to play chords and such.

how about you?

Im in drop C 75% of the time, standerd 20% of the time, and B 15% of the time... I Rarely go to D since most of the good metal is standerd... such as metallica, and I love the deep sound of Drop C... in B everthing I play just has a eerie sound that I love as well.

I constantly switch back and forth between standard and drop D right now I'm in E flat sometimes i'll go to drop C, sometimes I tune the top 3 strings to drop C but leave the bottom three in standard so I get all the high and low notes...
