    would i be right in saying that the tab for Brain Stew by Green Day has been wrote in the wrong tuning?

    i believe it should be flat instead of standard

    maybe i dont know what im talking about but ohwell!

    thanks :cool:

    The lowest note in the song was an E last time I checked.

    I know, the song goes:

    AA GG F#F# FF EE AA GG F#F# FF EE ....

    So considering that the lowest note is an E, there is no reason to tune down unless you just want the sound of looser strings. Either way, its still AA GG F#F# FF EE.
