DADDAD

ok, first play the seventh fret e string and open a, then retunne the e string till it sounds the same.

the next bit seemed dodgy to me but this is how i thought i should be done. play open d and open g, then retune the g till it sounds the same as the d (wouldnt that be too loose?) then play your open a string and open b and lower the b string till its an octave apart from the a string, then do the octave technique again with your two e's. play the low e string (should now be d) and the high e string, then retune the high e string

looks good, great job matt, Beat!

ill tell you how to do it using a tuner ( i presume its not chromatic)

ok, set your tuner to the g string (3g) and play your low e string either open or 12th fret ( 12th fret may be better since its nearer to the sound of open g. do this to your high e string but bear in mind a jump from e to g is quite high so watch out for the strings. while on 3g, play the second fret on your d string, then tune that into g, making the d string an f. next set your guitar to 4d and play the second fret on your a string. tune the second fret to d, again watching out for the snapping, and this string should now be the C. now set your tuner to 2b, and play the 1st ftret on the g string, and tune that into b. and to get the D, set the tuner on 1E, and play the second fret on the b string and tune that into e.

if your tuner doesnt pick up anything, higher them a little as the tuning involves a massive shift up.

and wait for beat to check too

While what matt says there is absolutely correct, id advise you just to put a capo in the third fret.

Huh, unless your playing up above the 20th fret theres no advantage in tuning up, just put a capo on the third fret of standard tuning and treat 3 as 0, 4 as 1 etc etc...... It will save you a lot of strings and wont cause the stress problems on your neck tuning up 1 and a half steps might.

dont you mean CGCFAD???

drop c (c g c f a d)

tune everything down a whole step (see above) and then play the seventh fret on your low e string (which now should be d) and open a (which now should be g). detune the e till it sounds the same as the a string. the tuning should now be C G C F A D. this is static-x's favourite tuning

okay, after talking this over with simon, we decided the best way to go about this tuning would be to use a capo

play open E and the 9th fret on a, then drop the e string. then open A and 7th fret on the d string, then retune a. then play the fitfh fret on the g string and open b, then retune the b string, then whack a capo on fret 6, i think thats right.

wait for simon to double check

First of all your really gonna have to start refering to me as beat, im sure very few know who this mythical Simon creature is. And to be honest i think you got your tuning round your neck mate.

'play open E and the 9th fret on a, then drop the e string'.

That would make it F# if as i presume you then tune to the 9th, but obviously when the capo goes on its up to like C, wrong way round to what i said i think, drop E to C, then put the capo on making F#

then open A and 7th fret on the d string, then retune a.

7th fret of D is already A so it wouldnt need retuning, you want to tune to the 5th fret of D.

then play the fitfh fret on the g string and open b, then retune the b string, then whack a capo on fret 6, i think thats right.

the rest is correct, however can i just confirm the tuning wanted low to high (E-e) is Gb Db Ab Db Gb Bb, seems an odd one to me, its not supposed to be the other wat round is it?????
