Does anyone know some typical alternate tunings used by these twinkle (really hate that description) bands are? I don't have much experience with that and usually shy away from anything that requires me to change the setup of my guitar, but I'm really curious.

FACGCE.

Since you're quoting him, are you giving yourself that award? Admirable confidence.

I know a lot of "punk"ier emo bands use drop D, Snowing etc. Grown Ups tunes down a half-step (and probably LOTS of other more recent emo bands do this). The more complicated, mathy, Kinsella-y stuff often uses crazy tunings the likes of which I can't tell you and/or use haha. Sorry if thats not much, thats all I really know.

Yeah, I'm talking about the ones that aren't nearly as straight-forward. Like American Football, I've never even tried to play their songs because I didn't feel like doing that to my guitar.


Thanks. Going up from standard without breaking a string is tough!

Only one mention of Pnuema, could be considered post-rock I guess but I believe it has some real emo elements in it.

S/T Everyone Everywhere is also pretty damn good, really reminds me of early Promise Ring stuff.

They played my friend's basement three-ish years ago (with La Dispute, Hostage Calm, and a plethora of other great bands), and I didn't go because of homework or something. I regret it to this day.

i saw them twice, and i still regret not going to their last show. best band.

EADF#AE is also applicable, it's what I tune to when I play this kind of stuff.
