D standard with drop C tuning?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I'm talking to a band about potentially becoming there bassist. When I asked what tuning they play in. The answer I got back is D standard with drop C. So D standard is D, G, C, F. I take it D standard with drop C would mean C, G, C, F ?


Anybody heard of this before?

Coincidentally I've used exactly that tuning in some industrial metally thing years ago.

I just tuned a headless 4string bass with "normal" strings down to this, and it was fine, as far as I was concerned anyway.

I'd just add it wasn't named as above, in fact wasn't given a name at all to my knowledge, I just clumsily described it as "like drop D but all down with the lowest note as C" :)
