This month I’d like to talk about a song from our forthcoming album, which will most likely be out by the time you read this, called…well, I have no idea what it’ll be called. But since it’s out now (I mean, by the time you are reading this) you will know the title, because you have it.
I wish you could reach back from the future into the past and tell me the title, but I guess you can’t. Regardless of the title, it will no doubt be the all-time heaviest heavy metal album ever made…by us.
The song I’d like to focus on here is a little ditty I call “Glory Hole.” It’s played in drop-D tuning down one half step (low to high, Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb). If you are in standard tuning, simply tune your entire guitar down one half step, and then tune the sixth string down an additional whole step.
