D flat standard, tune your guitar a whole step down, then another half step after that.

Basically your guitar is 3 frets lower than standard tuning.

Ibanez Jet King 2
Ibanez RGDIX7 MPB

OLP John Petrucci
Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro
Squier Stratocaster (modified)

Awesome! Thank you so much!! Will that tuning work on my Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings?

I have an auto tuner that can do D Standard, D Drop C, C# Standard and C Standard. Is it any of those?
#5
It's ok, we are here to help

It is C# Standard, Db Standard and C# Standard are the same tuning.

I would recommend at least 10 gauge strings at least, maybe even 11's depending on your scale length.

OK, thanks! I'll give it a go, worst case they break and I have to try out my first pair of Ernie Ball Cobalt strings!

They shouldn't break as you are tuning down, they could just be a little floppy.

The only major thing to concern with tuning and busting strings is simply tuning back up. Been there, done that with tuning down and testing new stuff out then WHAM! strings snapped and almost dug into my hand before. Ernie Balls, I remember, were the exact strings that were the ones that busted even though they were basically brand new heh
