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


bloody hell, ive only just worked out how much i messed that up.

1) i meant 9th fret on E and open A then retune the E string
2) play 7th fret on a and open d, then retune the a string
3)then the forth fret on b and open e, then retune the b.
4)whack a capo on fret 6.

that better?

i believe thats everything one and a half steps down

1. play the 8th fret on e and open a, then retune the e string/
2. play the 5th fret on e and open a and retune the a string
3. play the 5th fret on a and open d and retune the d string
4. play the 5th fret on d and open g and retune the g string
5. play the 4th fret on g and open b and retune the b string
6. play the 5th fret on b and open e and retune the e string

here's how to change strings properly:

take the string in one hand and pull ith through the tuning peg and pull it as tight as you can. take the string and grasp it at the nut with your other hand then pull it from teh nut to the first fret, all teh while maintaining the tension in your otehr hand. bend the string behind the tuning peg so it won't come off easily. now, start turning your tuner with one hand and in the same hand grasp a hold of the excess string. in the other hand keep the string as tight as possible by holding it high above the fretboard (you could also hold it to the side, it doesn't really matter where you hold it or in which direction you stretch it, just as long as there is alot of tension). Keep going maintaining as much tension as possible until your string is in tune. Once it is in tune gras it in your fingers and pull it all ove rhte place, yank it in all sorts of directions much farther tahn you would ever bend it. This will detune it badly, simply retune it. Repeat the process of severely detuning t and retuning it until you can no longer detune it. Repeat that step with all your strings and viola, you have a guitar that'll stay in tune for quite a while (unless you mess with alternate tunings alot and don't use those steps for each time you tune strings differently) You should make a note to never tune from a note that's too sharp to the proper one as that loosens alot the tension you've created and makes you need to stretch the strings alot more.

oh yeah, chuuuch

(c# g# c# f# a# d#) (the same as badreligion mentioned

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 7th fret on low e and open a, then retune the e string.

this seems a but shakey for me so wait fo beat to check :cheer:

im thinking you want half a step down with the low e dropped down a step? in which case it would be c# g# c# f# Bb Eb that the one you want?

tuning down half a step and drop e (c# 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 12th fret on bottom e and the open d (now c#), and detune e till it sounds the same as the open d

you could try it but i think i need beat to double check that one

i t hink it is one and a half steps down

anyways, play 8th fret on low e and open a, then retune e
then fifth fret on e and open a and retune a
then fifth fret on a and open d, then retune d
then fifth fret on d and open g, then retune g
then forth fret on g and open b, then retune b
then fifth fret on b and open high e, then retune e

so basicallly waht i did is i lowered the first string by one and a half steps, then poceeded to tune how i normally tune from there.
