alright well, im planning on doing some all shall perish covers, and most of their songs are in drop B.

And im having trouble figuring out how to tune my guitar to it.

I know zero theory, and the way I tune my guitar is youtube videos (pathetic, I know).

I just wanted a step by step way to tune my guitar to drop B from standard or drop C.

tune down from drop c the same way you would tune to drop c down from drop d.

Don't do it because ASP use seven strings and since you can't even get to Drop B on your own and probably don't have a tuner even though you've been playing for two years and will probably **** up your guitar or just waste strings and should probably stay in E and really learn to play before covering your wonderful little Deathcore music?

I CAN get it on my own, I just need to know how.

And my strings are heavy enough gauge so you dont have to worry about that.

Stop being an asshole douchebag.

Also, I cant afford a decent tuner right now.

There's plenty of online guitar tuners with tone generators. There are also plenty of tuning guides online. Learn to use Google before you pick your guitar back up.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

Well, if they use 7 strings, then you won't be able to get the last 5-7 notes or so that they might use in their songs. Just throwing that out there.

You can tune to drop b (BF#BEG#C#) if you have good ears. From standard...play an open b string...tune down your low e until its in tune with this b...then proceed to tune the others like you would a guitar in any drop tuning...7th fret on the low b=open f#(5th string)...once you get that one tuned...5th fret on the f#=open b (4th-string)...5th fret on the b string=open e (3rd string)...4th fret on the open e string=open g# (2nd string)...5th fret on the open g# string=open c#(1st string). Just start from the bottom and tune your way up the strings.


Or you could just buy a tuner.

quick google: http://www.fretjam.com/drop-tuning.html
I think this link should provide you with what you need to know!

I know how it is to be without a tuner! I just recently bought my first tuner, and I've been playing for about 4½ years before that! I learned to tune a guitar by ear, and so should you

(and some Google training could be useful too!)
