Re: Megadeth tuning to a 1/4 flat

I believe it probably has to do with the recording. Like "Ain't Talkin Bout Love" is a quarter-step down. But every other song on VHI is a 1/2 step down. The tape was sped up slightly causing it to sound 1/4 down. Anyone notice a lot of Dokken tunes are in this "in between" tuning? Like In My Dreams, Unchain the Night, Alone Again.
But if a band tunes to E and the tape is sped up, it sounds a 1/4 step high. Like Highway to Hell.
