they used to play in GGDDEbEb a lot, now it's mostly variations of CGDGCD.

yeh, kinda depends what era. pre 1986 its ggddEbEb, but in the last few years (for thurston at least) its prolly cgdgcd. i think lee uses mainly octave tunings of the AAGGAA type (im guessing there). f*f*f*f*eb is also used loads when t and L use the same tuning for a thrashy song, like kool thing.

I see that one the most on their older hits. And whatever Dirty Boots and Diamond Sea are in is popular as well. Lately stuff has been Low-C or Pavement tuning, as stated above.

I almost forgot, you have to try EG#EG#EG# at least once in your life. Expressway and PCH are in this tuning, and there's few greater feelings than hearing expressway blasting out of your amp.

my classic guitar is tuned like this for about a month now. i find it very strange they used this tuning for two songs and abandoned it for 18 years.

EG*EG*EG* is very hard to write stuff in i find, its most effective to just turn up yr amp and let it feedback, as its a really sweet tuning for letting the strings ring open.

dirty boots and diamond sea, for thurston at least are in EGDGEB, which is probably his fave 90s tuning

Hmmm, maybe they thought the same thing too, and came up with Paper Cup Exit. Worst thing is that I managed to tab it out, but the emails I sent got bounced, and the laptop it was on got stolen

DoubleNickels ain't too shabby
I have my other guitar tuned to the pavement tuning, but I'm thinking of switching it to some E tuning where I could play in all keys easily. The Pave tuning pretty much limits you to G or C.
