It’s just a fact. VH, AIC, GnR, Load-era Metallica, etc.
It just seems like Eb should be the norm.
Yeah, like taking off a pair of pants you bought that were a size smaller than they should be, relief at last.
Man I remember back when there was a guitar forum!
(edit: this post was in The Pub)
I like Eb better and used it for years.
These days tho, I tune standard for noodling time with recorded music.
I used to play with a guy who tuned to D. So, keep going.
Nah, darker not “Better”!
No, really they don’t.
I agree. But none of my band mates do.
It always seems to irritate the keyboard player.
Actually tuned up a full step is far superior
Completely agree. My personal fav is Drop Db, but Eb is a close second. So many great albums written in that tuning.
Might as well first tune down to 432Hz...and then down to Eb...
...that way you get all that mythical stuff happening at one time.
I have one tuned down to Eb for playing Van Halen. I don't notice any difference until I hit the low E string open. What I do like however is the ease in string bending.
Clearly Robben Ford, Larry Carlton, Joe Diorio, Jim Hall, Holdsworth, Carl Verheyen, Dann Huff, Ed Bickert etc... have it wrong.
I keep one guitar always tuned to Eb with a capo on it for standard.
Some guitars definitely do sound better when tuned down half a step. I keep all my gutars at Eb (and one at C# ). Plus, they are much easier and fund to play.
The downside is that they are more prone to fret buzz and wolf notes because of the pickups magnetic pull (stratitis)
