There are many ways to tune a guitar. How about drop d ?

I’ve been jamming in Drop D with my Dean 88 lately. This is where you drop the low E string a full step down to D (DADGBE). The effect makes for a heavier sound, especially for “power cords” in heavy metal and you can play them real fast as this makes the three low strings played open a D chord. I’ve added a concrete texture from On1 here for that industrial look, plus some extra toning in SilverEfex Pro2.

Another version here, but a little more clean.

Makes me want to go jam to some heavy metal \mm/
