Im trying to tune down to Db Gb Cb Fb Ab Db, does anyone know any good strategies to tune to that from DGCFAD by ear
You want to get the 8th fret of the lowE string to be in tune with the open A string. After that, all as usual.

EDIT: I'm assuming you're already in E standard

EDIT 2: I buggared that explanation up, it made sense in my head lol.

Tune the low E string down until the note on the 8th fret sounds the same as the open A string. Then tune by ear as normal.

Just an FYI, if you are using a tuner...you will drive your self insane looking for Cb and Fb. The tuning would actually be Db Gb B E Ab Db. I wish someone would have told me that 7 years ago when I tired it when I first started playing.
