If im not mistaken, the C should be up, not down from standard. Don't tune too fast though, you might snap a string.

to get the first C, the 10th fret is a C. so fret that and tune the A string up to a C.

to get the B string to an A, match the string note with the 2nd fret on the D string.

to get the highest string down to a D, fret the B (which has now been tuned to an A note) on the 5th fret, and match the highest string to that note.

Mmm. old strings dont change tunings well, haha. New strings should be able to tune up and down without any problems. Just make sure you take your time to tune up.

A savoir for odd tunings.

Rylynn is an incredibly advanced song - just letting you know. Also you will need one of those half capo things.

I was thinking to myself... "No offense dude, but if you can't handle changing tunings, how are you going to play this song?"

I've been wrong before though!
