Band:   Machine Head
Song:   Be Still And Know
Album:  Unto The Locust (2011)
Tuning: C# Standard (C#, F#, B, E, G#, C#)

Machine Head don't play in C# standard precisely... They are tuned to
C# Standard but then tuned up 40 cents sharper


On a Korg tuner it would look something like this

Tuner:
50                            x  50#
|--|--|--|--|-[-C#-]-|--|--|--|--|

The 'x' is where you want to be tuned to
I hope that helps anyway... xD

Also comment, correct, and please, please rate!!!

On further note... Look forward to the other songs from Unto The Locust!
I plan to put them here as soon as I've figured them out
