I'm going to attempt to learn Andy Mckee's rylynn.

My guitar is in standard tuning and i need to change it to E C D G A D. Also there is a capo on some of the strings in this song.

how do i tune my guitar? Do i tune it to e c d g a d then put on the capo or put on the capo first then tune it?

Most importantly, how do i even tune it to e c d g a d. i dont want to eff my guitar up.

yes, i know i don't know anyhing lol

Leave 6th string like that
Tune 5th string from A to C (up one tone and a half)
leave 4th string and 3rd as well
2nd string tune it down from A to B
1st string tune it down from E to D (1 tone)

i treid to tune it but the 5th string jumps from b to d. also, the peg starts coming out a bit...

up meaning sharp and down meaning flat right?


Yes.

i treid to tune it but the 5th string jumps from b to d.


I find it hard to believe that the string jumps a tone and a half.

also, the peg starts coming out a bit...


By 'peg' do you mean bridge pin?

i was using a tuner and it said b so in order to make it c, i turned it until the needle got past b sharp. then there was a d.

also, i cant play cause i have a reg capo. i thought the normal one would work casue i had used it on another guitar before..

is there another song that i can attempt to play? something classical or something like rylyn-soothing flowy melody? yeah not the best description

im not too good but its ok to suggest a hard one

all i can find is canon lmao, romance

I think the reason it jumped from B up to D is that you don't have a tuner that's chromatic. If you just have a tuner set to pick up the tones standard tuning, you're going to run into some problems.

Not only for the sake of this, but a lot of help in the years to come, invest in a good chromatic tuner. Whether it be clip-on, table top, or otherwise.

Andy's 'For My Father' is in the same tuning, is easier than Rylynn and is played with full capo on the third fret.
