Which do you prefer in Weezer albums? (see below for what albums were written in each tunings).

 

Why do you think Rivers switched up the tunings between albums?  I think he went standard tuning on Green because he was trying to be as poppy as possible, to "get his band back on the map".  I prefer half step down because I like how I sound singing it. 

 

I am basing this off of the Alubm tablature books:

1/2 Step Down:

Blue

Pinkerton

Make Believe

Red

Raditude

Hurly??? (don't know yet)

 

Standard Tuning:

Green Maladroit

But drop a full octave.
There's actually a lot you can do in drop D besides just playing power chords more easily. Try it sometime, OiP, it's actually kind of cool
Yes I know, I was thinking more along the lines of "Weezer" in drop D.

Yea blue and Pinkerton are definitely entirely half step down
Like someone else said earlier, No One Else is in standard.

The guitar tab books for Blue, Pink, Make Believe, and Red are entirely in 1/2 step down. This can also be justified by which guitars the band uses on stage for each song.
