    What is your favourite tuning???
    Mine, by far, is the power chord guitar.
    My fender only has the bottom 4 strings left and so I tuned it down to CGCG.
    It's so incredibly easy to play on , when you know it's just triplets up and down the strings.

    yeah i love using drop C too when the rest is one step get hell alot of chunk. But on my baritone (not really mine) i tune to B E A D G B...just to mess its great for playing Cryptopsy! :p

    but still, my favorite tuning is one step down, i was thinking of getting a D-Tuna for my ESP so i can switch the tuning on my 6th string from D to C within songs, and back.

    Anybody heard "White Summer Black Mountain Side",?
    Originally by Bert Jansch then enhanced by Jummy Page in during his The Yardbird's days.

    Anyway back to the tuning, that song uses a unique tuning, and when Page plays it in the zone, it sounds like a combo of Deep Acoustic and an Indian Sitar. Absolutely love that tuning. Also Page's tuning for The Rain Song deserves a mention. That guitar just makes me cry.

    Here's some good good info:
