: I'm very familiar with using dropped D tunings, but could anybody tell me how to correctly tune the E down a B and the A down to E? I need to know which frets to use when tuning it.
Alright...if you just want to try it, and not buy strings...here's how to do it. Use an electronic tuner. Duh. but if you don't have that: The E tunes down until it matches the B on the A (2nd fret on A string) and then the A tunes down until it matches the E on the B (5th Fret, B string). The other two stay the same, except the down tuning of the first two strings will lessen tension on the neck, making them go sharp. Tune the D to the tenth fret on the newE (what was your A) and the G to the fifth on the D. There you go.
