I keep the acoustic in standard tuning but sometimes drop it to D and it's what I do a lot of songwriting on. Currently, the LTD is in Drop C (down a whole step and the low string is down two steps) and the Tele is in A Standard (three and a half steps down, with the low 6 strings from a 7-string guitar). I play a lot of metal, so it works out. Haha.
Whoa, past the drop-D tuning I'm lost in the jargon. Drop D tuning is used in a few of my bluegrass songs, but being a metal guy you would probably laugh!
MH--I can relate, whenever someone else plays our strat or hollowbody electric, I think to myself "I don't deserve this guitar...this guitar deserves to be played like that!"
