A while ago I stumbled upon a tuning that became my new favourite: Dropped A. It’s simply this: tune your guitar to E Standard (E, A, D, G, B, E) but then take your low E string and drop it down until it’s an octave below your open A string, or A, A, D, G, B, E. I first hit upon this tuning when I was trying to play along with “No One Loves Me And Neither Do I” by Them Crooked Vultures, the side project featuring Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin. Then I did some digging and realised that there have been other songs that utilised this tuning.
