Tuning Down the Guitar

Tuning down half a step :

The standard tuning of a guitar is ( from low to high )

E A D G B E

To tune down half a step you must lower the six strings of a half tone, this way the new tune of the guitar will be :

Eb Ab Db GB Bb Eb


Tuning down full step (whole step) :

You must lower the six strings of a whole step and the new tune

Will be : D G C F A D


Tuning down Db :

There are two ways to obtain a Db tuning down, starting from the whole step tuning down you must lower the six strings another half step, so the new tune will be :

Db Gb B E Ab Db

 

Starting from the Open D tuning ( D A D Gb A D ) lower the six strings half a Step, the new tune will be :

Db Ab Db F Ab D

 

 

Note - all these special kinds of tuning are generally used on stage during the gigs to help the singers without changing the sound of a song.
