Will I do any damage to my violin if I tune it FDAE instead of GDAE? I've done searches and can't find anything.

I really need it for a song I'm trying to play.

That's brootalz Fassa.

Are you not using standard for moral and political reasons?

No damage whatsoever; you're only altering the tuning / tension of one string.

Nah it wont do anything, I've tried it with a school violin
What is this so called..... Signature?

Yes, you will break the fabrics of time and space if you do it Fassa

It's not possible. The note "F" does not exist.
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

Beethoven did it once. Long story short, that's how he became near deaf.

No, I'm tuning it that way so I can play Alex Lifeson's guitar parts on Rush's Subdivisions.

Of course you will! It'll change the tension of the string, I mean come on! Think of the children!

No, Fassa, of course it won't.

Also, this/

If the tuning for the song was like that I can't imagine they would make a song into a tuning that would damage your instrument.

Finding out from a violin expert would probably be best though, because they're expensive if the pit is wrong

Right, except it actually does. It's right there between E and Gb. Look it up man.

Just sounds like drop tuning a violing to me, as long as the tensions not severely decreased to the point of warping which i highly doubt then no.

One problem: I'm playing a GUITAR song on a VIOLIN. Blame Alex Lifeson for the tuning, not me.


Also, my violin is cheap and terrible.

Nope. There is no such thing as "F".

It will be fine provided you can tune a violin properly. It's a lot harder than a guitar.

She probably already knew it would work, just wanted to tell everyone that she was learning a Rush song on violin.
