does anyone know how to tune a guitar a step and a half down AND drop d? i cant find anything on it online. my tuning capabilities are extremely limited as all i have are apps and my own ears... i'm trying to learn i stay away by alice in chains, and normally my guitar teacher just tunes it for me but i'm on break and i really need to practice!
edit: i guess it's possible that the song isn't even in that tuning, so if that's the case, what is the correct tuning?

It seems that this song should be a half step down only + a drop tuning. So drop Db (some might say C#). The lowest string goes a step and a half down, all other strings a half step down.
Tune to :

Db Ab Db Gb Bb eb

No, it's definitely down a half step as well as the drop tuning, I checked.

drop Db - Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

or drop C# - C# G# C# F# A# D#
12feetdeep these are the same thing, but one with flats and one with sharps.

That tuning chart has a couple of suspect entries too :
C tuning makes much more sense as C F Bb Eb G C (similarly drop Bb, not drop A#)
C# tuning is listed backwards, should be C# F# B E G# C#
Personal preference - Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb for 1/2 step down.
