If you're tuning up just use a capo

EDIT: If you're only tuning up one string it shouldn't make much difference. The neck is designed to be under tension and 2 steps on one string shouldn't make that much difference. Just remember to tune it back down afterwards

i dont think youre supposed to ever tune your strings higher, only lower.
tuning a b string up to a c might make it snap.
if they need to go higher, youre probably supposed to use a capo.

mmm you may need a different guage string. Also if you keep you guitar like this it will NOT warp your fret board but keep alternating its tuning will.

tune everythings else down, except for the b string, and then slap a capo on it so that the other strings all are back to their normal tuning except for the b string, which will now be a c

u can easily do it but my word of advice is make shure when u change ur strings u put lots of slack before twisting the tuner and u should have no problem.....however ive never tried it. u say u might warp neck.....just do truss rod ajusting as u go
