Hey,

I just started learning electric guitar a few weeks ago and since then I've been doing varied exercises to build up speed,coordination and such....
Now to my actual question.I want to learn to play so I can play songs of my favourite Metalbands.So,I find alot of different Tunings that they use such as Drop C,Drop D,Drop B etc. I have got an electric tuner and I understand what flats and sharps are but for example Drop C tells me to tune the sixth string down two steps and the rest of the strings tuned down one step.So I tell my electric tuner to put in two flats so I tune the sixth string and one flat for the rest of the strings but here comes my confusement:It says tune "down" does this mean that I need to push down the sixth string on the 4th fret(two frets=one step I think)and play it or do I just need to put in the two flats and play the sixth string open???I hope you understand my question and can help me,I would really appreciate it!!!!Thank You

2 steps down mean 4 frets...I'm not sure if I understand you right.
to tune your guitar 2 steps down you have to press flat 4 times....
for 1 step, 2 times is enough.
I hope I helped.
I'm not familiar with metal tunings...I use only standard and half step down tunings.

there is no good reason to bump this 5 days after the issue was settled.


let's just let this drift down as other new threads are created,
so a Mod doesn't need to bother closing it. k ?
