After plenty of time listening to American Football I decided I want to play their stuff. I looked at tabs and came across this tuning and, being pretty much a noob at tuning, I have no idea how to get there. Can somebody please explain to me how to tune my acoustic from standard to FACGCE?
Studies have shown that 92% of guitar players are close-minded. Copy this into your signature if you're part of the 8% who enjoy rap.

E up 1/2 step to F
D down 1 step to C
B up 1/2 step to C
low to high strings

you would need to use lighter gauge strings for the up tuning maby .08 or something lower

G -> G = no change

The distance between b and c and e and f are just half steps.

not to sound rude, but go learn your music theory please. i know you mean good intentions, its just that the extra half step will make everything very off and possibly snap the b string.

also, i barely know any music theory, and i should take my own advice.

i just knew that they were a half step apart.
