"Why not just down-tune the whole band?"
Yea, thats what I'm saying. Dosen't anyone keep multiple guitars on stage and play some tunes standard and some tuned down? That's what I'm hoping to do some day. Bass player has more than one bass. Why not? I have 6 or so tunes I want to do half down. do em all at once and it's done. Or 3 and 3 later. It's just fun, swaping guitars and playin in a funkey tuning.
