So me and my band play all out songs in B standard, 7 string guitar for me, 6 tuned to B for the other guitarist and a 5 string bass.
But it lately I've just been yearning to go back to E standard. Does anyone else ever get this?
i was jamming some of my bands tracks on a 6 in E standard and they just felt so much more crunchy and aggressive - and fun. It Lost all the flub from the lower tunings. They also sounded great through my studio pre that way.
Am I alone in this, or do any of you guys get the urge for some grindy AF old school regular tunings?
Literally the only thing holding me back is wanting to use the 7 I built last year for sentimental reasons. But fuck sentimentality.
Has anyone ever made the switch back to E?
For one of my bands that hasn't gigged, or even been in the same room, in a long time I've be re-learning everything in E-standard(and drop D) since I don't have a 7 string any more. It's been actually quite fun! I did most of them in this pseudo-open tuning on a 7 since there were like 3 different tunings so switching has been kind of a challenge.
