I have this problem, i don't know if its common or if its an issue... but only on one of my two guitars does it happen...

Say I am in Standard tuning.. E-A-D-G-B-E and i want to go into D standard...

Well, I'll drop my E to D... etc etc till i get to my high E and drop that to D...

When i go back to make sure say my A is still a G itll be an A flat and no longer G...

So ill make it a G again, and now my high D is Eb!

Is it normal for the strings to go out of tune when just tuning another string to be the right tone?

(Try to understand what im saying, i know it may be hard

Try to tune both at the same time
I didn't knew that it was possible, but it may happen I guess, try changing strings?

do you have a floyd rose on that guitar?
because if you do then you'll just have to keep tuning it until it's right

What type of guitar is it? Does it have a tremolo? If it does that is probably what is causing your issues because the springs affect the tension and tuning across all of the strings. It will stay, you will probably just have to make a few passes at it.

Yeah its got tremolo, no floyed rose.

I just didnt know if this was "normal"~ its really not so bad just takes longer to tune up

if the trem on the guitar is "floating" even a little... then this can happen...

ya if its a floating bridge that's how it works. Completely normal. When drop tuning that puts less string tension which unbalances the balance between the strings and the springs. Thus it pulls the bridge back causing more tension on the other strings. Thus the guitar goes out of tune.

it`s the fact that the strings have streched to be in standard tuning so in your example when you drop the 5th to G from A the tension of the string naturally wants to be the A(you stretched it to that point) therefore going sharp to A flat from G.

once it`s been stretched it can`t be compressed.

providing you`ve not got a locking nut you might want invest in a graphite nut as this could ease the problem.

If you're simply going to tune a whole step down, don't touch the tuning pegs! The guitar has to be relatively in tune. Simply open the back cavity and reduce spring tension until you get the strings to sound one step lower. Tune this way and you'll practically only need to tune down one string and all of them will be in tune.

Sometime drastic change in tuning can makes the neck to bow more or less. It might knock the other stings off slightly. It's just to retune ir again. And make sure to give it a a few minutes in between each tuning for the neck to settle.

Also it's a good idea to make sure your trem bridge is not floating wrongly.

Crappy tuners and/or bridge most likely. The SE tuners suck (I used to own an SE24 and replaced the stock tuners with locking tuners -- problem solved). My Suhr Classic Kluson tuners/Gotoh bridges never goes out of tune -- I tune once a day or once per gig, just 'casue I feel like I should.
