To get your guitar to drop D tuning,(DADGBE) simply tune your low E(the top,fattest string)down until it sounds exactly the same as the D string(2 strings down from low E)and your off!

This is prety easy if you have a guitar tuner. FOR EACH STRING: place your finger on the first fret then tune your string while keeping your finger on the first fret. Do this for all your strings, it's that simple. If your guitar was tuned normaly, you'll notice that you'll have to bring the tension of your string "down". That's because your tuner will detect the note as being one fret (1/2 step) to high. You'll end up tuning your guitar 1/2 step (one fret) lower than normal. Get it? A half step down. You can tune down a full step, 1 and 1/2 step down...as low as you like (death metal fans will get a kick out of 1 and 1/2 steps down). Just bring your finger down the fret board one fret for each half step when tuning. To tune in "drop D": tune the biggest string (low E) down a full step and keep the other strings normal.
