I checked the tuning thread and this tuning wasn't listed, can someone teach me how to? By the way I do not own a piano to tune with the guitar and I'm not familiar with music theory so please keep it as basic as possible, thanks!

By the way I wanted to play "Pink India" by Stephen Malkmus that's why I'm asking. Here's the link to the tab

From standard tuning, drop your low E down to D, so that the 7th fret is the same as your open A string. Then, drop your G string down to F#, so that the 5th fret is the same as your open B string.

Hopefully, you can tune by ear. If not, then that F# will be hard to get using a tuner. Hope this helps anyway

With the guitar at standard tuning, you have two options. Tune the thickest (E) string down a half step (not quite a whole rotation of the tuning peg) and the string 3 strings away from it (G) down a half step also. Or, tune the lowest string down a half step as mentioned, and for the other string, tune it down until it matches the fourth fret sound on the thicker string next to it "D".
EDIT!!!!!: not a half step on the thickest string, a WHOLE step!!!

Dude! I think I can do that, and yeah I tune by ear! Thanks very much!

@Skullivan sadly I do not know what 'steps' are, care to point me to a link so I can try and learn them? Hey, does your Queen Fan Club have any requirement before joining?
