I didn't want to have to detune, but when I did, found this best sounding.

This is the ONLY version of this song on here that's accurate. And it's also the first one to be in THE RIGHT TUNING! Thank you, my friend.

exactly! I usually get flak from people who are turned off by having to retune their guitar, even though the miss out on the full range. I did a tab for "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi for example, which is in Drop C, and I received a lot of, "this isn't how the play it, they play in standard blah blah blah" it's just those "if it's not standard, it's not right" people out there. Just experiment man! thanks for the support (but i'm not kissing your ass :p )
