Asked by GrungeGuy on 2000-09-11

Answer posted by Tommy on 2000-09-22
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.

that is wrong! if u want to tune 1/2 step down u tune the low E down to the 6 fret to the open A when they sounds the same then tune the A string at the 6 fret to the open D and so on so on DONT LISTEN TO TOMMY AFTER ALL U WANT TO TUNE LOWER IN PITCH NOT HIGHER TUNING AT THE 1ST FRET IS SO STUPID IF U WANT TO TUNE LOWER IN PITCH TUNING AT THE 1ST FRET WILL MAKE THE PITCH GO HIGHER IN PITCH AND MAKE THE STRING HARD ALSO U MIGHT BREAK A STRING IF U TUNE HIGHER IN PITCH TRUST ME I BEEN PLAYING FOR 2 YEARS
