to tune to 2 steps down do I hold the 4th fret down on each string and tune to that string on a tuner?

That's a strange tuning, where'd you get it from?

Standard; Two whole steps down: C F Bb Eb G C - ( C F A# D# G C )

1. Play the 1st fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the A string to match the 1st fret Low E string.
2. Play the 6th fret A string and the D string open. Retune the D string to match the 5th fret A string.
3. Play the 5th fret D string and the G string open. Retune the G string to match the 5th fret D string.
4. Play the 3rd fret G string and the B string open. Retune the B string to match the 4th fret G string.
5. Play the 5th fret B string and the High E string open. Retune the High E string to match the 5th fret B string.
6. Play the 5th fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the 5th fret Low E to match the A string open.

Hey guys, stupid beginner questions here. Hope you can help me...

Okay, its my first guitar with a floating trem and I just wanted to make cautionary steps b4 I do something stupid...

My guitar came in standard tuning from the factory and I would like to tune it back again(in standard tuning) after some time to keep it in-tune.... So is it safe to go ahead and tune the guitar without worrying about the bridge goin bonkers or having to adjust anything?

Do I have to unlock something on the nut or something from the bridge b4 i tune the guitar ?

How bout if I wanted to do some low-tunings? Is it safe to go ahead and do them on a floating-trem?

Anyone who is sure and knows this kind of stuff please help.

From low to high that's Bb F Bb Eb G C, if that's what you mean.

Looks like Drop Bb

if its the same note it vibrates because of the bridge. like if i played the A on the E the A string would vibrate. you can mute the strings if it annoys you

Floyd rose? if it has a locking nut, you'll want to loosen it a bit before tuning, as it basically clamps the strings.

Probably cause your guitar isn't quite tuned perfectly right, or the intonation may be off.

If tuned perfectly it shouldn't do that at all, except when Indie says.

EBDEBE

1)Play the 7th fret E string and the open A string. Retune the A string to match the E string.
2) Play the 2nd fret D string and the open G string. Retune the G string to match the open G string.

Hi. I've had some difficulty tuning a floating trem (with locking nut) for the 1st time. Whenever I'd tune one string, then go back to another that I have already tuned in, it seems to go back out of tune. What is the reason for this and how do I tune it the proper way??

Personally, I hate those, but that's just me.

Try tuning like this:

Code:
e---------0- B-------0-5- G-------4-- D-----0---- A--0--5---- E--5-------


try tuning like that, it's hard to get your ear round, but once you do it'll be your best friend.
