I love Ace but this is ghey.
Supposedly they did the same for Led Zeppelin reunion. Whole step down to make it easier on Robert.What's ghey about it? He did make some valid points about singing live, about why it's better to drop the tuning rather than transpose because then every thing is different with relation to open strings. Yes, this is obvious to so most of us but it did feel like he was addressing less advanced players.
I tend to agree with the Fezzman ,, A440 for me too. Iam the singer and I have no issue with it so no big deal for meI'm not doing it---E 440 or I'll go Open E+A+G for real ring,These things always seem silly, some hairy burn-out guitarist sharing "wisdom." I always believe they would rather be drunk at an orgy then talking "craft."
Was anyone else bothered by D-flat instead of C-sharp, G-flat vs. F-sharp, etc.?
I tend to think in sharps. If I'm on the E playing A5 and you tell me to go A5b, I'll get lost but if you say G5#, I'm on it right away. The only exception is Bb...For some reason, going open A5 to A5# on the A string throws me for a loop.No. I believe it's appropriate to refer to the notes in flats if what you are actually doing is flattening the whole instrument by a semi-tone.
