Tune it lower so the when you play the 7th fret it matches the A string
Drink the sauce. Go on, it's okay. Just remember, I am the quest.

Or the 12th matches the D string

Lowering the tuning
#6
E (highest)
B
G
D
A
E (lowest)

Alright, you see that E string? Tune it down a whole step. That's Drop D tuning.

It should sound like this:

E (highest)
B
G
D
A
D (lowest)
#7
and to put it the way you said it TS that means loosen the tuner.

And as a rule of thumb, when tuning to odd tunings the note will be lower, or else just a little higher. there aren't any tunings I've heard of that go up more than around a step (much less almost an octave)

DROP D, im sorry but doesn't that say enough


I admit, I knew this had to be a simple question. Still, after watching videos and doing reading, I still didn't understand. Meh.

It's not a sticky, but an archived thread.
