-Heavy bass ranking! Down tuning course! -

A must -see for those who are starting the guitar and those who are already playing guitars!
Various tuning that exceeds the region of regular tuning and enables even a wide range of expressions. 。 。
When you are emotional, you will start to lower the tuning, you will be fascinated by the heavy bass and high gain that will shake your brain, and if you notice it, you will be able to drop tuning.

First of all, what kind of good thing is to lower the tuning?
Many people think that regular tuning is enough, but the advantage of lowering tuning is to use the sound, weight, gorgeous, heavy and dark dark atmosphere. In addition, in the drop tuning, the power code can be held down with one finger by lowering the 6 strings by one sound, and the combination with the open string can create a fantastic atmosphere, so it cannot be played with normal tuning. Riffs and phrases can also be played!
By using regular tuning, drop tuning, etc. depending on the song, you can play in a wide range of sounds, resulting in the width of the play, etc.

Black Sabbas guitarist, Tony Iomi, is also said to be the ancestor of down tune, and when he was working as a sheet metal work, he accidentally puts his hand in the press and cuts his middle finger and forefinger. It is said that what I did.
As a guitarist, cutting your finger is a very fatal event.
However, the handicap is overcome by attaching a plastic sack to the middle finger and index finger of the right hand.
At the same time, the tension of the guitar strings was reduced to the limit so that it could be played with a slight power.
The sound is low, it is a characteristic sound that has been crushed, and it is said to be the beginning of down tuning.
The achievements of Tony Ioomi, who overcome the terrible accident and now sublimated it into a major thing, is really wonderful.
In addition, historically, Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crew, Ingweay, etc., including Jimi Hen, who was surprisingly old and played with a semitone lowering. 。 。 In recent years, it has become more common regardless of Western music and Japanese music, and has been used in modern sounds such as metal, hardcore, emo, screaming, and recently DJENT such as Meshuggah and Periphery.

Just connect to the tuner and match the sound of each string!
For beginners, as a guide, it will be easier to understand if you lower it little by little after matching the regular tuning (EADGBE).
However, lowering the tuning will weaken the tension of the string, and the disadvantage will occur in which the sustain will decrease and the sound image will be blurred. 。 。
Therefore, by making the gauge of the string thicker according to the tuning, you can keep a clear and tension sound.
As a rough guide

・ Drop D ~ 1 sound lowering
 10-46~11-49

・ Drop C#to 2 sounds
 11-49~11-52

・ ~ Drop B
 12-54~13-56

With the above gauge, I think that there is no burden on the neck and can maintain a moderate tension!

You can easily drop tuning by matching the sound with the 6th -string 7 frets and the harmonics of the 5th string 5 frets, or the 6th string 5th fret and the harmonics of the 4th string 5th fret!

By lowering the tuning, the tension of the strings will inevitably weaken.
Therefore, a long -scale guitar, preferably long -scale (Fender scale) or a long -scale guitar with a long scale (666mm -686mm) is suitable for downtaining.
At present, long -scale guitars for down tuning are on sale from various manufacturers (YAMAHA DROP6 series, DragonFly 666, IBANEZ RGD, etc.) I think it would be good to have a dedicated aircraft specialized in down tutting!
Please be assured that you can downtower without any problems by making well with other guitars!
(I had a 13-56 gauge string on Les Paul and dropped it to Drop B ... lol)
