i'm having trouble tuning my guitar to this tuning: A#-F-A#-D#-G-C. i'm using a korg ca-30 chromatic tuner and i cant even find an A# or D#. and just to make sure, the first A# is the thickest string right?
Listen to CKY.

Should be.
Fender '72 Telecaster Deluxe Reissue -> Korg Pitchblack Tuner -> Boss PS-5 -> EHX Big Muff -> MXR EVH Phase 90 -> Menatone Pleasure Trem 5000 -> Line 6 Verbzilla -> MXR Carbon Copy -> Boss RC-2 -> Peavey Classic 50

Yes the first A# is the thickest string.

damn you tune low.

Btw, there is an easier way to tune to that. think of it as this instead:

Bb, F, Bb, Eb, G, C

You see, A# and Bb are the same note. which is why you cannot find A# or D# on your tuner. They are the same as Bb and Eb.

But I will say this much, unless your sporting .53-.10 guage strings or thicker, your tone will be crap. Too loose on the strings.

ok. it will be loose, but you should still get some tone out of it tuned that low. but i would definately recommend that if you are going to stay tuned that low, then buy some thicker strings. It will make it harder to play fast (until your wrist and hands get used to the strings) but your tone will cut through at that tuning much easier with more tension in the strings.

but yeah, good luck.
