and b even looser

The lower you go...the looser the strings become. That is why people who play in down tunings tend to use thicker strings so they don't flop around like dumb bitches.

You flat the tuner 4 times for the 6 String (Low E), and 2 times for all of the other strings.

anyone know how i can tune to drop C with a kong GA-30 tuner???



You press [On]
Hit the thickest string till your tuner says C and the light turns green.
Hit the 2nd thickest string till your tuner says G and the light turns green.
Hit the 3rd thickest string till your tuner says C and the light turns green.
Hit the 4th thickest string till your tuner says F and the light turns green.
Hit the 5th thickest string till your tuner says A and the light turns green.
Hit the thinnist string till your tuner says D and the light turns green.

The notes repeat so you can the same notes multiple times. These are diffrent octives. DON'T tune it to where there is a ton of tension on a string.

if you see a # or d next to the note your tune you are not right. means you are too high d mean too low.

I don't know how to go into simpler terms.

The GA-30 doesn't work like the chromatic tuner. To get "C" you literally have to have 4 flat symbols and it will still come up as E. If he tunes to letters, he is going to get the wrong pitches. That tuner is meant for people that basically just use standard tuning, doing other tunings other than just tuning everything down a set interval is a tad unusual.

i have that tuner and it works great for tuning down, as long as you dont go any lower than c standard, well you can go half a step lower but that still sucks
There's no point fearing death, as it is inevitably going to happen

click the button with the flat symbol on it (which kind of looks like a b) twice and tune your guitar like that and then tune the low e with the flat button four clicks down

the way i usually tune to C, is fret the low E on the second fret, and tune DOWN till u get a D, then the open string will be a C. i have the same problem with my tuners, no c and no f.

Yes but 4 flats on the tuner, then tune your C string to E. Yes E because its 4 + 4 flats = C.

Now for the 5 other strings tune then with 2 flats but down to their standard tunings. This will make your first 5 strings to 2 flats each.

E down 1 1/2 steps to C
A down 1 step to G
D down 1 step to C
G down 1 step to F
B down 1 step to A
E down 1 step to D

There's two steps down from E to C
Just had to point that out.
