Im trying to figure out what tri-tones are?? explanation in the most basic way would help alot considering i have very very limited knowledge on musical theory!

Also, if their specific notes, can u tell me what frets and what strings the tri-tones notes are on a Drop B tuning!!

Thanks!

A step is a jump of two frets- so 3rd fret to 5th fret. It's the same as a tone. One fret up is a semitone or a half step.

Take a note, add 6 frets. There's your tritone. So you could play:

e
B
G
D
A 6
E 5

In a drop tuning, you'd simply push the lower note up two frets (if on the dropped string), so in drop D, the above would be:

e
B
G
D
A 6
D 7

thats not necessarily true. there is no half step musically between a B and C, and E and F. therefore this has to be accounted for when counting steps

What are you talking about? The interval between a B and a C (ascending) IS a half step, same with E to F. However, the physical shape on the guitar will not change regardless of the notes; Deliriumbassist is completely correct.

I shall respectfully disagree and cite the C major scale, and the formula for the major scale as proof that B to C and E to F are half steps.

Well actually no it doesn't, a step is not the distance between two non-accidental (D-E, G-A) notes but the distance spanned by 2 semitones.
