It's possible with heavier strings and the right setup.

I've gone down to C standard with 9s before and it's still been playable, so with heavier strings, A should be achievable.

Thanks..

Are the 7's usually longer in the neck (I've never played one) if you know?
#123
I've never played one either, but I don't think so. You get baritone guitars which are longer in the neck, and are normally tuned to D I think.

Quick question:

I'm working on a heavy metal song. I have the distortion guitar tuned to drop C. I was just wondering what open tuning I could tune a slide guitar to that would go with that.

Thanks,

I have 13's on my guitar. They're hard to find but it will play A with ease and it sounds good....11's will play A but its really, well, anus sounding, for lack of a better word.

You sure you mean tuning and not key?

If so:

1. Tune the open A string to match the 3rd fret of the E string.
2. Tune the open D string to match the 5th fret of the A string.

What's a good tuning to use with drop D? An open tuning or something, not standard, D standard or anything like that.
Does anyone know the song that goes: ba ba bah, ba ba buh, bu ba bum, ba ba bah, ba bu buh, bu bu bum, bu ba bu bu bum baam?
#133
^In all honesty I haven't a clue.

You could use just about any open tuning I think.

Try asking in Musician Talk, the theoryheads might know better.

I'd think it would be

1. Tune open G string to match the 2nd fret of the D string
2. Remove the B string and replace with another e string and tune to 12th fret of G string.

What song is it?

Oh, I see.

It's an odd one.

The three highest strings are tuned as:

E4
E3
E2

Which basically means, the g string needs to be replaced with a low E string, and the B string with a D string, then tuned to match the 12th fret of the new "G" string.

They are each an octave apart.

That tuning for that song will work, although it seems that the band play it without dropping the E string the extra step (ie, they play C F A# D# G C rather than A# F A# D# G C)

Press it 4 times for the highest 5 strings, and 6 for the low A#

For the way they play it, just push it 4 times and tune regularly

#145
Not sure how that tuner works, but you will be able to use it.

Play the 4th fret of the E string and tune to E
Play the 2nd fret of the D string and tune to D

Tune the other strings normally

How the hell do you tune down 1/2 step?

I am trying to learn A Tout le Monde, and I need to tune down 1/2 step to learn it.

All I have is the cheap start copy starter pack with a crappy cheap digital quartz tuner.

All I know how to tune is to standard tuning. The directions on the first page kind of suck for me because Im new. can anyone help me?

Easiest way is probably to fret each string at the first fret and tune normally.

The tuning was C G D G B C
#151

C G D G B D

1. Play the 9th fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the 9th fret Low E to match the A string open.
2. Play the 7th fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the A string to match the 7th fret Low E.
3. Play the 1st fret B string and the High E open. Retune the High E string to match the 1st fret B string.

Hey there, how would I go about tuning my guitar to:

C G D# A# F C

It's for Jimi Hendrix's Hear My Train Comin', really lovely song, can pretty much play through it but I don't think I'm tuning it right cause when I play with the song it sounds weird alot of times.

Thanks in advance.
#153
^That's written high to low, rather than low to high.

Standard; Two whole steps down: C F Bb Eb G C - ( C F A# D# G C )

1. Play the 1st fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the A string to match the 1st fret Low E string.
2. Play the 5th fret A string and the D string open. Retune the D string to match the 5th fret A string.
3. Play the 5th fret D string and the G string open. Retune the G string to match the 5th fret D string.
4. Play the 4th fret G string and the B string open. Retune the B string to match the 4th fret G string.
5. Play the 5th fret B string and the High E string open. Retune the High E string to match the 5th fret B string.
6. Play the 5th fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the 5th fret Low E to match the A string open.


Or capo 4th fret and tune normally.

Im not sure if this should be in this thread, but it is about tuning.
I've heard that if I leave my guitar in an alternate tuning, such as some lowered tuning, the neck will begin to move and cause fret buzz. My guitar is an omen-6, so it has a fixed bridge and a maple neck.
I change tunings frequently, and never go lower than C, so I don't know how much damage this will cause. Could I set my guitar up some way to minimize the effect alternate tunings have on my guitar?

I recently just broke a string off my guitar after getting new ones put on because of my carelessness on tuning my guitar. The only tuning device I have is the one in the Roland Cube 30X. What I was attempting to do was tune my guitar to a Drop C#. I had a hard time tuning sharps and flats. I just don't know when to stop.

If I were to get a normal tuner, such as a Korg or something. Do those things help tune in sharps and flats? If not, when will I know if its sharp or flat enough?
#157
Alright, seeing as i almost never change tunings i need a bit of help, probably common sense but whatever.

How do i go about getting back to standard from a half step down?

The majority of tuners are what are known as chromatic tuners, and they will do that.

I have a Korg Guitar/Bass tuner, and I was wondering how many times I would push the flat button for each string to obtain a Drop B tuning (B F# B E G# C#).

Thanks.
