Artist:System Of A Down
Album:Toxicity
Title:Chop Suey!

Tunning is Drop-C and if you don't know by now here goes
 tune from standard: tune all 6 of your stings down a whole step 
 then tune your 6th string (the biggest one) down a whole step again
if you are to lazing just go drop-d but don't expect it to sound right
 and a whole step=2 frets 

Ok my friend tought me this and it sounds perfect
