you sure you want g?

not

a e a d f# b

cause everything then is five steps dropped with the e down tuned a step.....

drop a (a e a d f# b)

ok, play bottom e on the 12th fret and open a, then detune the e string till it sounds the same as the a. then play the seventh fret on the newly tuned e string and open a, then detune the a string. then play the fifth fret on the a string, ,then open d, then detune the d string, then play the fifth fret on the d string, then open g and detune the g. now, play the FORTH on the g string (should now be tuned into a d) and open b, then detune the b, then play the fifth on the b string, and the high e, then detune the high e.

I use AEADGB simply because a normal 7-string is BEADGBE- I just took off the last string and dropped from B to A like dropping from E to D.

BTW, I have an electric tuner, so I tune the low E-string by the tuner and tune the rest of the strings by ear.

Another good thing is that AEADGB with a capo at 2 is like a 7string, capo at 3 is like drop C tuning, capo at 4 is like drop Db/C#, etc.
