How can I tell what tuning a song is in besides obvious ones like standard. I mean like the difference between drop c and half step down, to drop d, to even tell differences between drop c#, etc

Any theory behind this, to confirm what tuning any song is actually in! Thanks again!
I'm talking about the really hard ones to differentiate from, the songs that don't give many clues such as bass notes, etc

There is theory to some degree, but not too much. It's more intuitive than anything. The key of the song might tell you a bit, but there's no guarantee. Just listen to the song and figure out the chords. That will give you a better idea of the tunings.

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.
