Well, get a 7 string. After you have done this, tune all the strings down a half step. Once you've managed this take your low B(flat) string and drop it down a whole step. That is Drop a flat.

Should be: Ab, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb
For those who care.

In standard, fret the Low E at the 11th fret and de-tune it till it matches the A string. Tune the rest as normal. Then drop the bottom string to match the 4th string.

You'll need at least .014 gauge strings.
I've used it a few times.

Edit: Beaten too it!

Nile go to A E A D F# B, so a half-step lower than that

The band only plays in Drop Ab? I think that sucks..


And I hope you guys aren't Cannibal Corpse wannabes because it's not brutal, it's ****ing immature. I hope you gus idolize Slipknot, who can ass rape Drop A and B.

Tune to A#/Bb Standard, then just tune the low E a whole step lower.

Not really, if you know your theory you'd be able to do it by tuning in fourths (and the third from G to B, I'm not counting the low E btw since it's an interval of a fifth I think).

Quote by JakdOnCrack
Get very heavy gauge strings. Tune your guitar to drop d, than lower all your strings a tritone. (Tritone = 3 whole steps/6 half steps)

I concur.

Well maybe I don't know my theory... Dennis Chambers can't read music and makes more than everyone in this thread combined.

You don't need to read music to know theory. Just know your intervals...

Stop bashing TS, he wants to tune that low, so who are you to stop him?

Simply refer to a earlier post on how to tune that low but i think .arkness:., a seven string would suit it better, if you want to get very low tones i would get a seven string
