Looked in the search bar and surprizingly nothing came up. Ok, so I googled drop b tuning and something came up but it was not what I was looking for. I just want the correct notes for drop b tuning. And how should I get to drop a or even g?

You can figure it out by yourself, it's just Drop D tuned down 1 whole step and a half.

Drop B is just C# standard with the low C# tuned a whole step down to B, and Drop A is B Standard with the low B tuned down to A.

My Explorer Pro is in Drop B and B Standard for Amon Amarth. I use D'Addario Light Baritones, they're .13- 62 with a wound 3rd.

Use the Mark Tremonti drop B, it's much easier to tune to. Low to high BADGBE

Well technically it isn't really drop B.

Well if you want to get real technical about it, it is drop B. A drop tuning is really lowering the E string, being the case with drop D. What most people consider drop B is technically drop D down a minor third, not drop B.
But because of that being what everyone thinks of it as, If I say tune to drop B from standard, I guarentee you anyone is going to tune all 6 strings down.

7 string.

To do drop G on a 6 String you'd have to have some pretty crazy strings. The lowest i go on 6 is B. Im usually never down there though, i hate using thicker strings. If i had a barritone though i would probably stay around there.
