D as in Drop D?
Drop D tuning is D-A-D-G-B-E
Loosen the low E string until it sounds at the same pitch as the A when held at the 7th fret.

Hope that made sense.

EDIT: ****! THAT'S THE SECOND TIME TODAY SELJER'S BEATEN ME TO ANSWERING THE QUESTION!!!

or you could match the E string on the 5th fret with the A string on the 5th fret or match the open E string with the open D string.

That was kind of confusing. I'm assuming you meant holding the E at the 7th fret.

EDIT: You mean Standard down one step, or Open D?

no standard D......

What standard tuned down a whole step?

Tune the low E so that it's 7th fret it matches the A open. Then tune the A from the fith fret of the low E. The D from the fith fret of the A. The G from the 5th fret of the D. The B from the FOURTH fret of the G. And the high E from the fith fret of the B.

Did that make scence?

Wow, people are stupid.

I think jpharaoh got it right, but I'm not sure.

He means OPEN D, not DROP D.
