That Eb tuning is better than D tuning?
My mind has been blown. Years ago I just decided DGCFAD (I played lots of Kreator and Death in my formative years) was the ultimate metal tuning and tuned all my guitars to it across the board. Recently while recording I felt like there was a certain livlieness missing on all my guitars.
I feel like my world has been shaken to its core. Is Eb actually the ultimate metal tuning? We are talking only about the realest of metals here. Thrash/Speed. I acknowledge that C#-B has its place in certain styles of Death Metal (Entombed, Edge of Sanity, etc.), which I do not play.
I typically think of D# as the superior thrash tuning. There's that, and the fact it opens you up for drop C#, which is better than drop C IMO.
