You gotta watch this in HD for the best sound quality. I was stunned. I didn't expect much, but you can't underestimate a Les Paul. This is Drop Ab (G#) and he has 13-65 strings.

I've been subscribed to this guy for a long time, he is very good at using amp simulators. I'm not sure how a real amp would handle such a tuning.

Why didn't you expect such a quality?!?
You can play djent on ANY guitar - in fact you can play ANYTHING on ANY guitar!
If you know how to to it and use the right equipment it will sound good.

And why should a Les Paul type guitar not sound as good as other guitars in djent metal? From my experience Les Pauls sound superior to 99% of the other guitars thanks to the way they are built - so why shouldn't they sound good in djent?

Oh and as long as you use a tubescreamer to boost your tube amp and cut the low end any real amp can handle these tunings.

Oh, well I'm glad that it is at least a Les Paul, yes. I wasn't sure what type of guitar exactly. Thanks. happy.gif

Yeah, I have to admit that I was prejudice and ignorant of what to expect from a Les Paul. I just had never seen one played so Djenty before. tongue.gif But no more will I judge the shape or type of guitar! smile.gif I see the "light" now. wink.gif Thanks for the enlightenment as well, man.

I didn't find this video by the way - it was shared with me and they said "Don't worry, it's not another crappy video" laugh.gif So I thought, haha okay - and then... Mind=BLOWN! (Where's the glue?)
