    I always love how when grunge came out everybody was thinking those bands invented drop D tuning. I am pretty sure most those guitarists had heard of an album called Fair Warning.

    Just like how Drop A has been around too especially in heavy country. Hmmmmm

    Don't you have to change out your strings to do Drop A?

    That's seven steps down on the E string alone, never tried it but I imagine the string would be looser than Pam Anderson after meeting Tommy Lee.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Its a bit looser than that. Kind of like Lena Dunhman after a fisting party loose.

    However you can tune it down and play with it a bit at home. Yes it will go out of tune but its fun to tinker with. Eddie in fact did it at home to before they broke big. Well if that one recording of a supposed young Eddie Van Halen is legit. He does SGMAD with a Drop A. Not sure if that recording from I think 74 is legit though but the person playing does use it

    Might have to try it, I like alternative tunings.
