you mean these?

tuning down half a step (d# g# c# f# a# d#)

from normal tuning, play the forth fret on bottom e, then open a, detune the a till it sounds the same as the e. Then, on the a string, play the fifth fret, then open d, and then detune the a string till it sounds the same as the open d. then do the fifth on the d with open g, then the FORTH with g and open b, then the Fifth with b and open top e. then play the bottom e and the top e, and detune the top till it sounds the same as the bottom


tuning down a step (d g c f a d)

from normal tuning, play the third fret on bottom e, then open a, detune the a till it sounds the same as the third fret of e. Then, on the a string, play the fifth fret, then open d, and then detune the a string till it sounds the same as the open d. then do the fifth on the d with open g, then the FORTH with g and open b, then the Fifth with b and open top e. then play the bottom e and the top e, and detune the top till it sounds the same as the bottom.

I dont think he did mean those actually matt, i may be wrong. I tune to open D as DADF#AD, and so open Db is just that but half a step down, Db,Ab,Db,F,Ab,Db.

I just tuned my guitar down 2 steps (I think) It's in whatever Drop B is but in standard instead of dropped. What is this exactly?

Thumbs up Big Drop

You are tuned to C
Even lower than my favorite Black Sabbath tune "Into The Void " which was tuned to C#. Your axe is gonna sound Heavy!

Wish I was there to hear you tear up some wattage! Possibly the sound will be so heavy it will travel through the core of the earth!
Have to admire a metaler with big balls! Crank that puppy!

lol, I tuned down lower cause my sis usually blasts rap in the middle of the night so I cant sleep.

She wont like what she wakes up to tomarrow.

Anyways, if I tune down again and dropped it it'd be drop A I think, what is it if I tune it down 1 more step after that?

AS in, if I tuned down 2 more steps then Im at now.

Talking Fly on the wall

I would tend tothink that tuning too much lower may lossen the strings, to the point that they wont stay in tune too well, but I sure would like to be a fly on the wall when your sister gets her well deserved "wake up call"

play the 4th fret on the low e string and open a, then retune the e string so it sound the same as open a, then play the forth fret on the a string and open d, then retune the a string, the play open d and the low e (which now should be tuned to f), then play the 7th fret of the retuned A string and tune the fourth string to that. The play the fifth fret of the D string and tune the G string to that. then play the forth fret on the newly tuned g string and open b, then retune b so it sounds the same. then there are two ways of retuning the top string, eith play low e and bottom e togeth and higher the tuning of high e till they sound the same or play the 3rd fret of the b string and the high open e and retune till it sounds the same

phew........ you may wanna let beat double check it first

EDIT : Checked and amended to what i think is correct, anyone who wants to query this please pm me, best way too check is for the requestee to try using this guide, Beat!

We'll leave this open so that people can ask question on tunings not covered in the original thread, when/if it gets big enough ill move it over to archives and start another one, but please no spamming and no repetition of tunings previously covered. Beat!

ill do both, though what simon says it probably right

EABEBE

hmmm, not too tricky. play the 2nd fret of a and open d, and detune the d till the two sound exactly the same. then you can do e the octave way, by playing one of the e strings and open g, then detuning g till the notes sound an octave apart, or play the fifth fret on open d (now should be b) and open g and retune g till it sounds the same as the fifth fret on the d string

actually, ive gotta lesson now, so ill do beats later

play the 7th fret on your low e and open a then retune the a so it sounds the same as the 7th fret E. then play the 12th fret on your low e and open d, then retune your d string. then on your open d (which now should be E) play the forth fret, and open g, then retune your g to get #g
