I both looked up in the tuning thread and used the search bar and got nothing so, here's the deal. I got a couple of songs that don't sound right in standard tuning but when tuning it up slightly, not up to F, but up to the 450 mark on my tuner, they do sound right. So what's the right "name" for what I'm doing?

adjusting to your ear ????

you must have a fancy tuner ...
you could call it " tooners "

haven't the slightest idea bro :S

or are u playing everything half step down???

It's supposed to be in standard tuning but it sounds off, tuning it a bit up, not even up to F, just a little bit up, it does sound accurate.

maybe your tuner might be off and what you thought was standard ws actually a little bit down so wen you tune slightly up its actually in standard, its happened to me before

I doubt its that, tried more than one tuner and it works just fine with any other song, tuning, etc.

Yeah some people tune up a few Hz. That's all there is to it.

That would be called tuning to A=450 Hz, by the way.

Well it clearly doesn't sound right in standard tuning, its slightly up.

capo?
and what song is it?
Sing me a new song
A broken song of redemption and regret
Sing me a new song
And beg for all the mercy you can get

TS already said it's not quite a half step up (10 Hz, to be exact).
