    ^that's pretty neat! :)

    I'm using Drop A w/all fourths on my seven
    [ AEADGcf, I would recommend trying a Perfect 4th tuning to everyone. The only negative is you cant play conventional bar chords (using 6/5 strings) and you can't do diatonic sweeping, but it forces you to play the guitar intervallically, and more organically. :hbang:


    On my 6 I'm using Eb Standard, but only to learn Protest the Hero songs (lazy bastard working from tab so I leave the tuning as it is).

    From Colony:

    - Ordinary Story
    - Colony

    The rest of the songs are in C Standard.

    From Clayman:

    - Pinball Map
    - As the Future Repeats Today

    The rest of the songs are in C Standard.

    From Reroute to Remain:

    - System
    - Egonomic
    - Minus
    - Black & White

    The rest of the songs are in C standard.

    Transparent is in Drop-G.

    These albums are entirely in Drop A#: (as far as I can remember)

    - Soundtrack to Your Escape
    - Come Clarity
    - A Sense of Purpose
    - Sounds of a Playground Fading

    The new one will probably be in Drop A# entirely because they seem to have abandoned other tunings since Soundtrack came out.

    AGCFAD.

    That's right, Mastodon.

    Basically turns every two-finger power chord into an anus-tearing low octave chord. Hell yes.

    you take a 25.5 in 7 string, and tune-it down a half-step, and thats about all she can handle IMO

    Can't seem to find it, what was Keith's tuning used in most his videos? I think he called it drop Bb or something. 7 string of course...

    Both, actually. Drop C on their Self-titled, Toxicity, and Steal This Album!, Drop C# on Mezmerize and Hypnotize. I suspect that they just play their old stuff up in C# or new stuff down in C (less likely methinks) live, since I've never seen Daron and Shavo switch axes in videos, but I could be mistaken.
