might be a bad question, but how do you tune your guitar to BDDDDD for the song Iris?
My Gear:
1969 Fender Mustang Reissue
Fender DG-5 Acoustic
Washburn House of Blues
Fender Blues Junior
ProCo Rat Distortion
Electro Harmonix Small Clone
Err...since when is iris in BDDDDD? Anyways I guess use a tuner...or try tuning it by ear...there are sites that tell you how to tune by ear...I can't ever do it but it's worth a try.

Since always.

Anyway, TS:

Two highest strings: tuned to D, same D as the highest string in D standard.
Two middle strings: tuned to the D string E standard.
Next lowest string: same as the D from Drop D.
Lowest string: Tune aaallll the way down to B.

Or you could play it in standard...that's how I always did it cause it was easier to sing to

Verse: D-Em-G-Bm-A-G
Chours: Bm-A-G

(there's a tab on UG bro)

If your child can breathe, suspect drugs. Only people who breathe take drugs. People who cannot breathe still can, but it is increasingly difficult.
Just look up chords in standard...it may sound a bit different but it should be worth it since there's no chances of breaking every string on your guitar lol
I tried the tuning this morning. I thought I was about to bust a B string all over my basement. It's kind of a cool tuning, but a scary couple moments while you get there.
