Tune down two full steps. You can tune it until it's an octave below your C on the A string, 3rd fret.

Or use a tuner.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

No, you're asking the wrong question. 'how to tune the bass E String to C'. It's 'why would I want to tune my bottom e string to a c'.

John Mayer must be crazy

Tune the low E string down until its pitch when played at the 9th fret equals the tone of the A string.

You may need a heavier gauge of strings to tune that low.
