It's better with no teeth, trust me. Much fewer scars on my penis now that I've switched from seniors in high school to senior citizens.

If you can't do it with your tuner, hold down the third fret on the A string, and then tune your E down until they sound the same.

Edit: You beat me to it. ^^

nah, i dont think loosening the strings is bad at all, unless you change to guages that are like at least two sizes bigger than normal, like from 9s to 11s, then you really gotta adjust some things

that would be tuning the low e up not down

the correct way would be to tune the 7th fret on the e string to a open

Check for yourselves
