Hello Marcus

Today I was watching one of your vids. The tuning was Eb. I thinks this means to tune the guitar down one half step? Yes? I am asking to be sure.

Yes, exactly, this is my normal tuning that I am using all the time, you just tune down all the strings half a step.

OK, that's what I thought. So if this is your standard tuning, do you still play at the standard positions? Or do you shift everything up a fret?

No, we don't shift positions, we just tune down and play normally, so all our songs are half a note down compared to regular tunings.

I've been playing with this lately and I'm liking it a lot. Gives a more carnivorous sound! tongue.gif
