I'm trying to learn some songs in standard tuning as most of the ones i know are tuned down in some way or dropped. I'm looking for mostly rock/metal but i wouldn't mind some other styles as well. So i'm thinking anything except stuff by Metallica and Iron Maiden because i know of them already. Cheers

Almost everything by Opeth, they got a few songs in dropped D tuning and the whole Ghost Reveries album is played in Open Dm tuning I think, but besides that pretty much every song is in E standard.

Any Megadeth song, but i really like;
Kick The Chair
Anything off Rust in peace and peace sells
Dread and the fugitive mind
Symphony Of Destruction is really fun to play, and pretty easy too.

any opeth songs:
Burden
Blackwater park
the drapery falls

Erotomania by Dream Theater - those string-skipping quintuplets are lovely things to practise (said with undertones of sarcasm) tongue.gif
