Dimebag Darrell Guitar Tuning

If you have ever learned a Pantera song on guitar, it can be a pretty rewarding endeavor. NO ONE in metal played with as much soul as Dimebag Darrell. So, once you’ve mastered the plethora of bends, harmonics and tremolo’s that litter Dimebag’s songs, you wanna play the tune right alongside Dimebag himself.

You plug in your guitar, turn your amp on and start the song. Immediately, you realize one thing: You’re not in the same tuning as Dimebag.

So you stop the song and tune down a half step.

You restart the song and hear that you are, AGAIN, not in the same tuning as Dimebag.

You stop the song and ask yourself,

“WHAT THE FUCK TUNING IS THIS GUY IN?”

Well, I’ve got great news! I have Dimebag’s tuning.

C# F# B E G# C#

Now, tune up and bend those strings like Dime would!
