When you drop tune your guitar, On the low E string, 5th Fret, is is still considered an A?
#2
No. Because it's not an A. It's a G (assuming you're going to Drop D). The note names don't refer to positions on strings, they refer to notes.

Of course it's not an A. You changed the tuning of your string. It's now a D. One semitone or one fret higher is now an D#. The fifth fret becomes a G.

If you play guitar, you'd have to change all your chord shapes which would result in some impossible fingerings. That's why let's say drop D is used for some power-chord-like stuff.

Ahhhh, I sorta figured this already, I guess I just needed to ask a dumb question

Nah, nothing is dumb if you don't know it. You might have asked one question only but you got a few other questions answered, too.

There are many questions that need to be asked in the life of a guitarist. Thankfully we have the internet and random dudes on ultimate-guitar to answer most of them for us.
