well, I use 10 strings, and it works really good FOR ME (hehe, I use 08 with standard tunning). I guess you should go for a 11 strings wink.gif


I use 11 in standard! laugh.gif

If there's going to be drop c lessons there might as well be drop d flat,drop b, and drop a tunings lessons too.

WOW, you are a hard boy !! hahaha, well I use this strings because I like to play impossible bends biggrin.gif

Patterns are the same in Drop C and in drop D. I think I can record a lesson in Drop C and upload the double of videos changing artificially the pitch so I can do 2 lessons in one... I think it will be great smile.gif

I got an Ibanez set up to drop C. If any one is interested in drop C, make sure you have the right gauge of strings on your guitar. Just dropping your standard E tuning guitar to drop aint gaonna work (unless you have really heavy gauge strings alread). Im still trying to find a set of strings im happy with but you gonna be looking in the region of 11-58, or there abouts. If you use to light a gauge the strings are gonna flap about like a tent in a hurricane, you'll have no control in either hand. Too heavier a gauge and you'll either ruin your guitar or you wont be able to bend the strings.

There are a few bands out there that are using this tuning, the main one i know is Killswitch Engage.

Drop C is pretty cool, you can do some real heavy stuff, and also some fairly high pitch stuff too.

Well as far as arpegios, patterns, chords, etc. goes, it doesn't change at all from drop D tunning only a lower sound tongue.gif

I definitely would Juan! I've explored the tuning a bit, but with a set of 9's, the strings seem to be quite loose. Still sounds ok though. Bring on the lessons! smile.gif

Just a Tip 9s are great for when your first learning how to play guitar, but after you been playing for over (lets say 9 to 12 months) you should probably switch to 10s. You will get better tone, be able to play in more tunings, and it will strengthen your fingers!

I would be interested I have a couple freinds you play in this tuning, but I don't know too much about it!

Thanks for the tip but tbh, I'm quite happy with the 9's and don't venture down that low very often. smile.gif I actually like the tone from them as well. Cheers! smile.gif

And Welcome to GMC!
