fifth down or a fourth up

likely down though

baritone and then down a full step if you like

it's relatively (in the true sense of the word) similar (also in the true sense) to standard so all your shapes chords etc work fine.

fifth down needs some pretty heavy gauge strings though. Tough sound for metal as well

You don't have to play the song in the same key that the original is in .

That's for a baritone, tuned down a whole step.
That's my fav tuning when I had .015s.

.013s aren't enough for that, unless you got a longer scale neck or something.

Oh I thought A D G C E A was some new crazy scale that hopped around! /endsarcasm

They go hand in hand for the most part.

that song is in Drop A dude, I heard it's better if you use a 7-string, and the correct tuning is A-E-A-D-Gb-B for a 6 string..

it's not 4 steps, it's 3 1/2. there's no sharp/flat between B and C.
