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.

This Day in Music Spotlight: Jimi Hendrix Opens for The Monkees

It had to be one of the strangest pairings in rock and roll history. On this day in 1967, The Jimi Hendrix Experience began a tour as the opening act for… The Monkees. Yes, the cherished guitar god and his group had agreed to support the “Pre-Fab Four” on their American trek. It’s no surprise that the situation didn’t end well – although it had little to do with the relationship between the musicians.

This Day in Music Spotlight: Bruce Springsteen’s American Dream

There are few stylistic changes more jarring than the one Bruce Springsteen made between 1982’s Nebraska and 1984’s Born in the U.S.A.
