Hello,

I am new to different tunnings for the longest I have only used starnard and drop D. Now to tune to DADADD I would tune down right?

E= Tune down to D
A= N/A A
D= N/A D
G= Tune down to A
B= Tune down to D
E= Tune down to D

Right? So I guess thats my question is this how I do it?

I believe you actually tune your G and B up.

Be careful with your B string, raising it to D is dangerous. If your not carefull and you pass by a little you can blow that string.
Also if you want some songs on that tuning, Mark tremonti is your friend.

Maybe bring the G up and the B down.
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

Why dont you search? Theres an only tuning thread at the top of this forum, and I personally know its in there, I wrote it out, and I've also wrote 2 tuning lessons with this tuning as an example, and i belive the lesson is still on the lessons homepage.


http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/lessons/the_basics/basic_to_advanced_tuning.html


D <= Tune 1 step down
A <= Leave alone
D <= Leave alone
A <= Tune 1 step up
D <= Tune 1.5 steps up
D <= Tune 1 step down (should be the same as the B string).

Mark tremonti Uses this tuning.

That being said, this tuning is wrote out 3 times on various pages on UG. Use the search function.
