I've been playing for a year to a year and a half, and I've never gone outside of standard tuning. So sorry to ask such a noobish question, but when tuning your E string to drop d, I know the sound is 2 frets lower and such but is the d sound you get lower or higher if you tuned the E string to a f? Thanks in advance.
Well, if you drop it a whole step, it will sound a lot lower than raising it a whole step. The looser the string, the lower the sound.
