How would this work? I think this is how Mudvayne tunes. I don't want to tune my E, a, d, and g strings up to make my Low B dropped, and I don't want to drop my 4 string that far down. I want to avoid any neck tension issues. That's my main concern. We're probably going to be playing a lot of straight forward metal. Hopefully with some different stuff in between. What are the possible complications I might run into using there mismatched tunings? I can really only see problems that might arise in the event that we are both going to do some complicated runs together. Has anyone else played with a guitarist that tunes to drop B? If I was a guitarist I would just get a flibbin 7. But then you can barre power chords For what it's worth, I've never been a fan of dropped tunings. D standard, Eb standard, B standard. That's where it's at.
