Not entirely sure if this is the right section but if not move it please.

I need to know how to tune to this, C# G# C# F# A# D# or Db Ab Db Gb Bb Ee

I have an electrical tuner which tunes to standard but I know theres ways of using it to tune to other tunings, like tuning the 3rd fret of the E string until its tuned to E etc so if anyone has any techniques for tuning usuing a tuner it would be much appreciated

Thanks mate, but how would I use that pic to tune using a tuner? is it possible?


What tuner is it?

Why not tune using your ears?
Play a note (I.E C#), and tune the string based on that.

tune the low E-string down until your tuner tells you its a Db or a C#. then do the same with all the other strings.

Youre in standard right now, correct?
Strum the 4th fret on the low e string, then tune the a string to that pitch.
Then strum the 5th fret on the a string, and tune the d string to that pitch.
Strum the 5th fret on the d string, tune the g string.
Strum the 4th fret on the g string, then tune the b string too it.
5th fret B string, tune high e to that.
Then, strum the 7th fret on the low e string, tune that so it matches the pitch of the open a string.


there, you are now in drop d flat tuning.

Just use the tuner to tune the low E string near perfectly, then do the rest with harmonics. You hit a natural harmonic on say, the low E string on the 5th fret, then on the 7th fret on the A string in front of it. If the E string is tuned, but the A string isn't, you should hear the note waver. Tune the A string until the notes are the same pitch and they sound like a flat line. You can use this technique with E+A, A+D, D+G, and B+E. You have to do G+B by ear with enharmonic notes (fretted) or use a tuner, although you should still hear the same kind of wavering if it isn't in tune. Note that for this to work, the Low E has to be a close to perfectly tuned as possible. Both harmonics need to be ringing clearly at the same time as well. Also, it's a lot easier to do with distortion.

Hope this helps.
