    How do I tune down to C# F# B E?
    I've been trying to use my tuner but it won't go that low.
    what are other options?
    Thank you

    OK, you want to tune down 3 halfsteps, so you just have to press the 3rd fret on each string and tune to the same pitch that the open string would have, e.g. E for the E string. That way you tune the 3rd fret to E, and the open string is tuned to C#.

    Now, 3 half steps only on the E and A strings right? and and whole step with second fret on the D and G strings?
    Thank you.

    Well, it was answered by the time I got here, but I suppose this is more of a GI thang.
