make sure your strings will take it, too i wouldnt bother with anything under 10-52's for drop C

Yeah I tried it out, i have slinkys, i dont know what to do cos i want strinks i can move about probably a hybrid set would be a good option. I tried beefy slinkys once and when in standard or 1/2 step down they were really hard work

You need at least 10-gauge to go more than a step down.
And even then, you want 11s or 12s to go that extra step.
I have Dunlop 10s on the Paul and I keep it tuned (roughly) 2 steps down off standard, and it could do with a bit less flop on the low strings. Probably going to go for 10-60s to maintain the lower tuning and minimize flop.


Edit: Unless you are using a long-scale guitar like a Strat, which would have more tension on the same gauge strings at those tunings. You could probably get away with standard 10s 2 steps down.

^^ Good point.


You could just tune to a variation of the tuning. Circle of fifths for the win!

If you read a song written in Drop D, you can play it in Drop D, but you can also play it in Drop D down a step (which makes your low string a C). You can also play songs written down a step in standard.

I'm not sure if the tuning "Drop C" is just standard with the low E down two steps, because I don't play anything that isn't in Drop D, Standard, or variations thereof.
