I've been playing for about 6 months now. I practice on the upside of 4 hours a day, and technique wise I'm getting pretty decent.

But as far as theory goes... well, not so good.

I was asking a friend of mine if I needed to drop the other strings to match my dropped E string, and I was wondering...

It's drop D when only E is in D, right? When all the other strings are dropped down it's in Drop B.

Right?

Hi, I'm looking for some fruit, I can't decide between apples and oranges.
Which one is better?
Thanks

Drop B tuning is when you tune to drop D and then tune everything down an additional 3 semitones.

I think calling something drop C or drop B when you mean "drop D down 1/1.5 steps" is fairly silly, but it's in the guitarists' vernacular now.
