I kept the 1st, 3rd, and 5th strings the same as in standard tuning, but not sure what to do for the other strings. For those, I tuned all of them down. I was wondering if I should have tuned any of them up though? Thanks

I think you got it right.

6th:E Standard
5th:G Down a step from standard
4th Standard
3rd Down to D
2nd:B Standard
1st Down a step from standard

Not a thing. Just as there's nothing wrong with any other tuning a person may feel like using.

Hmmm....I highly recommend you explore some different tunings.

QFT

Drop tunings are good for brutal stuff but like open D sounds good on acoustic. Just adds a little personality for some things but some things it's impossible otherwise.
Still suck at guitar? Try Jamora

Need any help with guitar, music theory, technique, practice exercises or improvisation? Just send me a pm! I love to help

Peace. Love. And chaos.

you need an electronic tuner if you're into those tunings.
it can help speed things up.
but it is good your workin on your ear.

If you can find one get the Korg DT-10.
I've beat the crap out of mine for years.
It just keeps working.

I suppose it's nice to experiment and try out different things, being stuck doing the same thing over and over is never good for the creative juices!

But on the other hand, I think a lot of people just from on standard anything from the get go.. as if you cant be experimental or heavy tuning to E standard

Its just fun to experiment with tunnings. Up or down. Like I've tunned my low E string up to F, and it sounded just great and gives you some huge explorations from there.

I've been in CGDGDD lately.
But I'm dropped a whole step from standard right now.
