    Default EVH Guitar Tunings

    So the thread about AADGBE tuning got me thinking...what other songs does Eddie use alternate tunings? I know Unchained and Drop Dead Legs are in Drop D. Right?

    Most of the Fair Warning album is in dropped D.
    When that album came out, it opened the flood gates, and soon everybody's brother, was in dropped D!

    Top Jimmy is in DADACD.

    Yes I will!

    Just check out my sticky thread covering Van Halen tunings. There is an alternate tuning on nearly every recording of every individual song in the catalog:

    I know you are really referring to open tunings and dropped 6th string tunings, but as my thread proves, even the non-open and non-dropped tuned songs are almost always in an exotic offset tuning.
