I'm pretty sure to tune down 1 half step you can put the capo on the first fret and tune your guitar to standard tuning. (Correct me if I'm wrong!) My question is to tune down 2 half steps, would I just put the capo on the second fret and tune to standard tuning? Thanks!

um... you mean like open standard tuning of standard when the capo is on? and why dont you just google "d standard guitar tuner?"

Put a piece of tape on the headstock and write "Gibson" on it.
If done properly, this should quadruple your sustain.

why would you tune your guitar down a whole step and put a capo on to be in standard? why not just tune to standard and play? unless you're playing one song in standard and another song a whole step down.

but yes, if you tuned your guitar a whole step down, you could put a capo on the second fret and be in standard.

If you tune down two whole steps then the capo needs to be on the third fret.

2 halves, not 2 wholes.

A capo is an unneccessary part of the process. Just grab a tuner and tune your guitar to DGCFAD.

so basically you want your guitar in standard tuning, but using a capo instead of open? i, too, am curious why you would do that.

I do this sometimes. If I want to play a song a tone down then play one in standard then I'll just capo it. Saves having to tune it up and down all the time, especially at gigs.

OP doesn't know that two halves equals a whole. We're all confusing him.

The fretboard is dry because it is more than likely made in China.

I wonder how he came to this conclusion.
