Myles actually retunes his guitars a bit so it makes it harder to judge based on him
I'm pretty sure there was no tuning between these songs.

Judging by the way he describes the tuning for I'm the Deep, it's likely AGCFAD, maybe all a half step higher.

For Myles that sounds right but as he stated him and Mark are in different tunings on this song. By the way I'm assuming your talking about Myles using the black tele which he also uses on cry of achilles and ghost which are all in different tunings. Either he's retuning or playing differently than the albums.

Yes the black Tele. Cry of Achilles is a half step down so it wouldn't be a stretch for him to drop the D# to a C# as needed. But they both use an open tuning for Ghosts as far as I know.

So I did a thing over Christmas and retuned one of my guitars to G# standard and was able to recreate "In the deep" as Mark plays it live so I'm definitely going with that tuning for Mark.

In London at the guitar clinic I asked Mark about Indoctrination and what version of Drop A# he was using (whether it was a la Come to life/Broken wings etc or Tore My Heart out) and he said actually it's in standard tuned all the way down to A#... tried that on my down-tuned guitar and it works but it's so unnecessary... :facepalm

Interesting to hear that. Have any of you guys listened to Scott's new album? Trying to figure out the tunings there.

Edit: I tried playing Indoctrination in the Broken Wings tuning and it definitely sounds a bit off.

I'm going to retract one of my earlier posts in this thread and go back to saying WTS is played in D# Standard and not n Drop C# --- during the bridge there is the droning low D# note and also during Mark's solo there is a distinct low D# note following a bunch of notes around the 12th-15th frets; much easier to hit with an open D# string after all the fretting up high.

Hey everyone. Haven't seen anyone discussing Last Rites in here, what are people's guesses for the tuning? I've seen D# Standard using the whammy bar and Drop C# using bends.

Eb Standard is my guess

There are a couple of songs where Myles is in a different tuning than Mark.

For Coming Home and This Side of Fate Myles is BADGBE
On Ghost of Days Gone By, Words Darker Than Their Wings, and You Will Be Remembered Myles is Drop C#.

Also for Tremonti Erock is in D Standard for As the Silence Becomes Me.

Out of the songs that they have played live off of the new album here are the tunings:

In the Deep (Mark: G# C# F# B D# G# / Myles: C# G# C# F# A# D#)
Godspeed (D# G# C# F# A# D#)
Native Son (C# G# C# F# A# D#)
Take the Crown (C# G# C# F# A# D#)
Indoctrination (Mark: A# D# G# C# F A# / Myles: A# G# C# F# A# D#)
Pay No Mind (C# G# C# F# A# D#)
Forever Falling (Mark: C# F# B E G# C# / Myles: C# G# C# F# A# D#)
Dying Light (C# F# C# F# A# C#)

For Dying Light Myles might be in the minor version of that tuning. And I know this has been debated before and Mark has said for Words Darker, he is in Open F#m, but if you watch the RAH live video you can see his fingering and it is definitely F#sus2.

Any thoughts on which open tuning Myles used for In Stride?

Sounds like a D Major tuning. Now I wouldn't know what exactly the strings are tuned to because I never play in open tunings, but I'm gonna guess D A D F# A D
