you mean you can't tune your low E that Low? then you need a higher gauge set of strings.

Depending on what gauge strings you are currently using you might want to step up the guage a bit! If your using .10s you might be ok but when your drop the low E to C you might get some fret buzzzzzzz.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

[quote="'[TF"]kyoshiro']Wow , cant believe the number of assholes on this forum. He's new to guitar , hes not going to know EVERY detail you all do.

You tune down ( C G C F A D )

Here's a good online tuner : http://www.howtotuneaguitar.org/


yes, there are alot of assholes in the forum but whatcha gonna do? besides you cant help but to laugh at the fact that he wants to drop tune but ends up tightening the strings to UP tune. thus defeating the WHOLE purpose of drop tuning. its funny, people are going to laugh, you live and learn.

anyways yes you loosen the strings on your guitar and yes that site that kyoshiro gave you would do just fine

The last time I checked when you drop something it doesnt go up. So its one of those things where asking why I cant tighten my string enough to lower the tuning is asking to be made fun of. Just as you cant push on a door that says pull and ask why it wont open. Or the kid on UG who got really mad when he asked the question about why when he disconnected the speakers on his amp it didnt make any sound. Just kinda begs for sarcasm.
