hi, im learning off of tabs at the moment. and everytime i view a different tab it always tells me to tune my guitar to drop D, etc... well I need something that'll help me do this very easily. any ideas guys?

P.S. since i already made a thread.

I have a Crate GT-15 amp, and an Ibanez RX series. I want to play like system of a down. specifically the song byob. I know how to play the song halfway, just need to tune it right.

what do i do to tune the amp and the guitar to sound just like that song?

Amp: Go to the settings thread; there's a few Daron Malakian settings (SOAD guitarist...)
Guitar: All guitars are tuned to Drop D down 1/2 step:
Low to High: (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

Only tuning thread:https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=356567

As for a tuner, go to your local guitar shop and ask the sales clerk about tuners; we can't help you unless you give us a budget, tuners go anywhere from $15-$250.

a great cheap one is the Korg GA-30. It is only $15 and it can do all of those drop tunings.
