My band can't decide which tuning we should play in. Thing is, not at our songs are in the same tuning. Some are in standard, others are dropped. Right now we're playing in Dropped C, which works well because we play Death Metal and it's heavy. And when we have to play our other songs, we simply tune the last string up to D.
Our bassist has a 5 string, so that complicates things. His guitar doesn't go EADGBE, it goes BEADG or something. That's his standard E tuning. When we're playing Dropped C and want to make it D, he has to tune his whole guitar while we only tune 1 string. How can we make this simple?
