Okay, my tuner's battery is dead, and until I have the chance to get another one, is there a way I can tune half-step down by ear?

yes, you know how to tune by holding down the fifth fret on each string except for the g string and matching those tones with the open string above (tone wise) right? well first match the low e string 6th fret with open a, then regular tune from there

tune A string to 4th fret low E, then tune the rest like you normally would. Think its in a sticky somewhere

No, fourth fret, that's Ab. Tuning to the sixth fret would make the A string a Bb.


no dude, he's saying down tune the e string, then match it with the a string using the 6th fret, which would produce Eb

Yeah, you're right. I misread that.
