just cause you got buzzing doesn't mean its a truss rod issue, its likely the saddles. Pics of the neck!!

the other guitar player in my band and my singer both say its the rod but didn't go into detail on to how to tighten it.

^ Don't.

First, make sure it's actually a truss rod problem.

please note: im only saying tighten the truss rod becuase you said your neck wasnt straight, and im assuming its bowed beyond what it should be, but yes check the saddles first

Kind of... yea and no, but that much reduction in string tension might cause your neck to bow upwards.

It may not be the truss rod. Many low end guitar have uneven frets. Going from .10 to .9 shouldnt make it unplayable.
