First I must say I am very new to guitar. I hope this does.not sound like a stupid question. My ears are not quite used to the tones and I am sure I will aquire that after time. In fact I am starting to be able to sense when it is out of tune. I use AP tuner on my computer to make sure it is tuned perfectly. It also has a preset for drop D which is handy. Now it lists normal tuning as: E2,A2,D3,G3,B3,E4 and Drop D as: D2,A2,D3,G3,B3,E4 I would like to set a preset for DGCFAD, But I dont know what numbers should follow the notes? Can anyone help with this and I would be interested in other tunings as well so I can preset them in AP tuner.
Thank You and Best Regards

I'm guessing the numbers change after each Ab to G#. So every octave.
So DGCFAD might be:
D2 G2 C3 F3 A4 D4

Thank You for the input. I will gove it a try, But is anyone more sure about this? I want to make sure it is right :)

PS I have wore out google searching and searching and I can't find a listing of notes for different tunings.

Doesn't include octave designations, but you should be able to figure out most of these: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=235483

Also, Tenacious_dex's tuning seems right except for the A should be A3 not A4 I believe.

ok I gave it a shot and I think D2 G2 C3 F3 A3 D4 is the winner :) Thank you all for your input if anyone knows of the notes for any other tunings please feel free to share
