I'm a bit new at changing tunings all the time, going from drop c, to standard, to drop d and such. I've had my guitar tuned to drop c for a while(few months), and I was wondering if I should take caution when I tune back to standard. Will the strings snap? damage the neck? etc. I have a hardtail guitar (Ibanez RG321). I'm hoping nothing will happen, but you never know, doesn't hurt to be safe.
it should be alright i left mine in drop d for like two months and nothing happened
tune it up a half step and let the strings stretch for 10 minutes, then tune up another half step. If you are going up from drop D or down from anything you dont need to worry.
