Whats your opinion on always tuning half a step down on each string (a.k.a. tuning 435) ? My band has a friend who kind of manages our band. He gets us gigs and elts us practice through his pa system. He lends us equipment and gives us pointers aswell. When we first went there he told us we should all tune down to 435 to help with our vocals. A few months downt he road, I'm starting to question this. Yes it does help us sing (each note is half a step lower), but could this put us at a disadvantage in anyway? Should we tune back to standard tuning and learn to sing our songs half a step higher( im sure it wont be very hard, i tend to sing notes in relation to what notes im playing anyways). Now I jsut leave all of my absses tuned 435 and ive even started righting in 435. Who else does this? again I ask, should I change this because it could put me at a disadvantage or is it fine that im doing this?
