Bit of an odd question I know, but if you guys ever do cover songs, do you play them in their original tuning, or in your own tuning?
The reason I ask, is my band is gonna cover a song, and the song is originally in D# standard, but we're either gonna be covering it in dropped C, or B standard. Sacrilege or not? The song is this...

I think it depends on the song, really. Some songs work in a different tuning, and others don't.
Just dont drop tune.
