Re: 24 Fret Tuning Question!

And the kind of metal your key is made out of is important too. I find brass gives the best tone......

Lol - Iron gets rusty which means inferior tone and less sustain. Eric Johnson only uses Brass keys and can also tell the brand of battery you put in your garage door remote control just by hearing the sound it makes when it opens.

Eric Johnson is an "emo" kid, and a 17 year old one at that

Iron and brass are for whimps, you might as well use aluminium or magnesium (yuk!)

Real heav˙ metal is played with lead or tungsten, tuned to Pi obviously,


...mmmmh Pi

Why would this guy have a JEM and not even know how to tune a god dman guitar. Sorry you aren't Steve Vai jsut because you have a signature guitar....
And a fourth!!! Wow, I just read this thread and had to laugh... I've met and received lectures from quite a few "guitar experts" just like that. You guys were are all right on, but quoting Wikipedia of all things to prove him wrong seems a bit dubious to me.

There's too much snake oil in guitardom with all sorts of silly claims. My favourite is the entry for the Dean ML on wikipedia. It's either been written by someone by Dean or copied from their literature.

Re: 24 Fret Tuning Question!

24 fret guitars are tuned to standard, just like 22 fret guitars. Drop D tuning is perfectly fine.
