I sing lead on about 45 classic rock cover tunes per gig.
I'm thinking about drop tuning a half step.
I'm concerned it will change the "flavor" of certain songs.

Will anyone notice?

Who does?

Who doesn't?

Pro's or Cons?


Dave, You'll be amazed at the new range you get from just that 1/2 step! :D

Try it you'll like it!

The only con is it's a pain for our drummer to de-tune for our shows! 8)

aw mwt...you too? i thought you were proud of me on sat. you have to admit i've been very good lately though.

sorry to hijack guitardave...for what it's worth, i change keys all the time to suit my voice. i don't go for lowering the overall tuning on instruments, that's just my personal preference, seems like way more work than it's worth to change the keys on a half dozen songs for a 4 hour night...but transposing the chords or just using a capo: big fan.
