So, as I understand, drop D tuning is when you use standard tuning, except that the low E string is tuned until it is also D. I have a tuner that will be able to tell me when my 6th string is tuned to D, but do I need to tighten it or lossen it to get to D?
Sorry for stupid question, but im lost. If I need to tighten it, what is to stop me from breaking it?

google.

there are probably a billion tuning guides on the web.


you could also just think that d is lower than e in the same octave....

Loosen to D. Its called "Drop" because you "Drop it down" to D. Same with things like Drop C. You are tuning down.

You loosen it a bit. Play the 3 lowest strings (or 4 if you have 7 strings) with heavy distortion on and slowly tune down until those low strings (D, A, E) sound like a powerchord when you play them open. To tune back up, play an E5 (2nd Fret A, Open Low E) and tune the E up until it sounds like a powerchord.
