With a tuner.
Or play the b string and tune down the d string to match. Then play the low e string and tune down to match. Play the seventh fret on the low e string (now b) and tune the a string down to match that. Play the 2nd fret on the A string (now f#) and tune the b string to match that. Finally play the 5th fret of the D string (now b) and adjust the g string to get to that pitch.

Atleast that's how i do it without a tuner, there's probably a better way.
This is my sig

2 very different things

If you have a Chromatic tuner, you can do it easily, if you have a non-chromatic tuner, then tune the low E down to a B still on your tuner, and then tune the other strings to their relevant pitches off of that

What is the easiest way to tune to Drop B?
Tune your low E string down so it matches your A string at the second fret.
then tune the a so it matches the E (Now B) string at the seventh (7th) fret.
Now, tune the rest of the strings by using the A string at the 5th fret to tune the D string, and the G string to the D string, then the 4th fret of the G string tune the B string down. Now use the 5th fret of the B string to match the high E string.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Probably with a chromatic tuner



This, and your gonna have to restretch the strings for that low tuning, Also some really thick strings would help alot. What gauges are you using now?
