I've been on a serious Voivod kick recently, having rather fallen in love with them after years of not quite seeing the point.
I've heard in quite a few interviews that Piggy had one or more oddball tunings that he used on some albums, but at the same time no-one seems to be able to agree on what they were, and I have an guitar magazine somewhere that came out right after he died, where he's quoted as saying that things people thought were altered tunings were actually diagonal barres and similar techniques.
Can anyone shed any light on this, as I'm struggling to find a proper answer anywhere?
I'd love to know as well. Although, I cant really get into any of their albums except Phobos. I know Voivod fans usually hate that record because its completely different than the thrashy stuff they did on all their other albums, but that album is really up my musical ally.
