No you will be fine. Its only one note lower, and one string. I play 12/13s even in standard.

I play 10-52 on my Tremonti SE which is a 25 inch scale at Eb. Feels perfect. I have my 25.5 set up for Drop C with the same gauge strings, which also feels just right. You should be fine with the 10's. Might I recommend Daddario NYXL's, as they are a stellar set of strings, a little bit more mid's, and they seem to stay brighter longer than the normal Daddario's.

Thanks Timo!

Hey guys during an Artist Session in Zurich a couple of days ago I asked Mark about the tuning for Cruel Sun and he said it's Open G half step down. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet though.

Also, can someone link me to where Mark says he's the one in Open Gm for Cradle to the Grave and not in Drop C#? I could have sworn I read in some interview that it was Myles who was in Open Gm.

Edit: Okay Cruel Sun is definitely in Open G half step down, Mark even plays the intro on his original instructional DVD.

There's been some discussion about Mark using standard tuning in the Army of 12 FB page. One claim is that Burn It Down was never played in this tuning, that One Day Remains is the only Alter Bridge song in standard. Anyone want to elaborate on why it's in standard here?

Because the recorded version is in standard. The rare times they have played Burn it Down since the AB III tours have been in half-step down. Those are the only 2 AB songs I’m aware of that were recorded in standard tuning

That's what I thought too. I'm not sure what to believe.

Burn it Down is in E standard on the album and they played it like that on the ODR tour:



But they've been performing it in Eb since the Blackbird (so to speak) tour:

This is NAMM 2007, January I suppose.

Not 100% sure this is the right topic for this question but does Myles play the solo for The Damage Done?

Mark and Myles both play the solo, talked about it with Mark at one of his guitar clinics. One of my absolute favorites, harmonized guitar solos are the best

Really? I would've expected they just used an octave pedal or overdubbed it.
