i mostly play in standard tuning, but occasionally when i feel like playing stuff like Metallica-Whiskey in the Jar, i go down to drop D, seldom in Eb.

Recorded all of The Essence Of Winter with D standard tuning and have stuck with it ever since.

I play mostly in standard or in half step down, but only on my acoustics. On elektryc I play mostly in Drop C, but there You have to use thicker strings, like these

Standard for quite a while but now I'm playing in C. I dislike drop tunings.

Yeah Drop D or standard for us. I think if I start struggling for a bit of inspiration ill mess around more.

I used to play in either drop-B or C# standard when I was in a band (Machine Head was my biggest influence at the time). Now I have a 7-string to play in E-standard, drop-D, B-standard or drop-A (or any half/full steps down on any of those). A 7-string is the most versatile for different tunings IMO (obviously without a floyd rose as much as I enjoy them!).
