    Default Live guitar tabs

    I know the band play their songs like a tone up or down or something live so the songs are slightly different from the album version, and I wana be able to play along to some of their live stuff, so so what do i do? play everything a fret lower or higher or what?

    I think I read somewhere that they use a dropped D tuning.

    Half Step Down...so if you play a note...it sounds like your playing it 1 fret down from where your really playing it. SO if you wanna play live offspring songs with a normal tuned guitar, just play 1 fret lower.

    With the hours of Live video I have of The Offspring, and the concert I have atteneded of their's (I want to go to Holiday Havoc but can't) I have never really noticed this at all with any song.

    I think you're all insane, though it is a possibility that they'd alt-tune if Dex can't sing as high, though he tends to just try and end up sounding like he's dieing.

    P.S.- not every song by The Offspring is in Standard E just so you know, if you didn't.

    Yeah I know they arent all standard but ones that I know are like self esteem and playing along to the album my guitaring sounds fine but playing against some of their live tracks i sound out of tune so they are playing different from the record
