Umm... You turn the knobs.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
Tune each string down half a step.

Or maybe it's a step....man, I'm tired. I have no idea.
It's a half step down. It's the same as Eb tuning.

ok, there is an easier way to understand this.

let me put it this way: in stead of D# G# C# F# A# D# (low to high) lets try Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

so instead of sharp, its now flat, but still is the same note value (theory, look it up if you dont believe me) so does it now look familiar? its standard a half step down. what you want to do is get a digital tuner and press the flat (b) button once. then tune just like you would in standard.

if you do not have a digital tuner then tune it by ear. if you usually tune by ear you know what frets to hold. standard you would tune the 1st string (high E) by holding the 2nd string at the 5th fret and matching the notes by ear. instead use the 4th fret (half step down) so, let me try to break it down like this:

tune high E string: 2nd string, 4th fret
B string: 3rd string, 3rd fret
G string: 4th string, 4th fret
D string: 5th string, 4th fret
A string: 6th string, 4th fret
low E string: hold at 5th fret. play A string, match the note.

i hope i explained it well enough for you. good luck. (and i pray to god that you have a digital tuner, cause im not 100% sure if thats the correct way to tune by ear with this tuning)

Just hold down the 6th fret on the low E string and tune it down so it sounds like the A string.....now your E string has become a D#

now tune the rest of the strings normally as you wouildve done
what are you talking about, he's gotta buy a new guitar for a new tuning

Your being too opinionated
is that even possible?
Yes it is..
Wow, this thread sure is interesting

I'm pretty sure this is the wrong forum for tuning talk
