So I've been experimenting with different tunings and wanted to see what you guys like.

I'm currently playing in a D tunning ( D-G-C-F-A-D ) and digging the sound. The PH's are off the hook!
Let me know what you like so I can try it! biggrin.gif

Usually standard, but right now I'm tuned down a half step for Sweet Child O' Mine. All of my guitars have floating bridges so I don't detune all that often. smile.gif

Really just standard...I'll tune down to drop D or whatever if I have to (I have a Floyd Rose). I'm thinking about selling my strat and buying either an Ibanez V or Dave Mustaine Dean, so I will use it for alternate tunings smile.gif
