i thought it was DD#A#D#GG for rapture, etc...but could be off by a half-step or so. i'll check it out again. i imagine CGDGCD returns as well on the other half...

same tuning.

INCINERATE? (if thurston didnt swap gtrs @ radio show thang)
RAPTURE
SLEEPIN
PINK STEAM
OR
(HELEN)
(EYELINER)

are all in the same tuning, something close to DD#A#D#GG, I think...

I'd guess Turquoise Boy and Lights Out might be in CGDGCD or even CGDGBB, going by their placement in the live sets so far, and the general sound.

Thurston plays bass on Rats...

I have no idea for Lee or Kim's tunings so far, and I'm not too concerned. Maybe they'll print em all on a set list like they did for Nurse...otherwise, I'm sure we'll figure em out.

DD#A#D#GG is right on Chris.

It's used on Incinerate as well. I just worked it out roughly.

Woah? new tuning... looks like something Lee would play.

i don't have my Spanish Tuning Chart handy but do you tune up or down to get to the sharps (#) from std. tuning? i'm assuming the first D# is a half step above the low D, not sure about the A# or D#.... the GGs are in unison and the same as the std. G...??? in comparison this seems to be a lower sounding tuning except for the low C in the CGDGCD, which seems to make sense by the way the songs sound.

EDIT:
ok, is this right? in accordance to the same method Chris has to obtain tunings on his tutorial:

G same as std. G
G same as std. G
D# (Gd4?)
A# (Dd5?)
D# (Ad6?)
D (Ed2)

I think the D should be muted at some points and the "higher" D# added...especially the intro.

I realize that especially in most cases for SY tunings the key is string gauge...

probably at least 52s for the low D...
and something like not much lower than 17s for the high Gs...

otherwise it sounds just abit too floppy.
