um if you have a tuner just tune ur low E down until your tuner says C#, your A till it says G#, and so forth

if your tuner reads flats (b) instead of sharps (#), then tune to Db Ab Db Gb Eb

its called drop Db tuning

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

hi guys, i need to tune to: C#G#C#F#A#D# from low to high. my tuner is a Korg GA-30 (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Korg-GA30-GuitarBass-Tuner?sku=210526) how do i do it?

are you serious?
you just tune your guitar down untill the note you want pops up on the screen of your tuner....

can you tune it with no flats? kuz if u cant, and one flat is the lowest, then try 2 flats. The low string is gonna be 4 flats if one is the lowest, or 3 flats if you can tune with no flats

ok, let me start with this

you know how you can put flats on? like you said earlier. you put one flat on? well can you put no flats on?

yes, you can have no flats on

ok. tune your low E string with 3 flats on. that puts it 3 half steps lower, meaning it will be tuned to Db. then tune the rest of your strings with 1 flat on; that will put them one half step lower. your final tuning will be Db-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb

that should put it in drop Db.

by putting a flat on, it means youre tuning the note one half step lower. by putting 2 flats on, youre tuning 2 half steps lower, or one whole step lower, etc. its a little confusing but once you get used to it it should be easier
