How to tune to Drop C without a tuning aid When drop tuning to C without any note reference, the easiest way is to first make sure you're in standard tuning, or near enough (E A D G B e). Now we need to find a C note on the fret board to use as a reference for tuning the low E string to C. This can be found at fret 3 on the A string.
​​Once you have that low E down to a C, tune the other strings down using the following steps:
◾Fret the newly tuned low C string at fret 7 and tune the A string down until it matches.
◾Fret the newly tuned A string (now G) at fret 5 and tune the D string down until it matches.
◾Fret the newly tuned D string (now C) at fret 5 and tune the G string down until it matches.
◾Fret the newly tuned G string (now F) at fret 4 and tune the B string down until it matches.
◾Fret the newly tuned B string (now A) at fret 5 and tune the E string down until it matches.
​◾The high E string should now be tuned down to the note D.
Drop Tune D
1.​ Tune your 6th string down one whole step using one of these methods: If you have a chromatic tuner, play the string and unwind it until the tuner indicates its pitch as D.

2.Note that if you don't have a tuner (or just want to do it more quickly), either match the 6th string pitch to the 4th string pitch (but an octave down) or lower the 6th string pitch until the pitch at the 7th fret matches the 5th string (A).

​3.​​Your guitar should now be tuned to: D-A-D-G-B-E
WARNING! This is not to be confused with Standard D tuning, which is all strings on the guitar tuned down a whole step, making it tuned to DGCFAD
Some people might tell you that this is cheating, or it's the easy way out. Do not take this to heart. Some things just cannot be played without Drop D tuning.
TIPS ! If you are using distortion and are familiar with the sound of a power chord then you can use 1 finger to barre strings 6,5,and 4 on the same fret (any fret or play it open) and tune the low E string down until you hear the distinct power chord,for tuning back up finger the strings as if you were playing a power chord in standard tuning and (as an example) fret the third fret on the 6th string and the 5th fret on both strings 5 and 4,now strum this chord and tune the 6th string up until you get that distinct power chord sound.
The Main Point is to get your low E string (the fattest string on the guitar) down to a D (so tune it down a step) D-A-D-G-B-E
When tuning a guitar string, first turn the tuning head until the string is slightly below the pitch you're aiming for, then raise it up to the correct pitch. This tightening action will help keep the string from slipping back out of tune.
Your 4th and 6th strings should now be the same pitch, one octave apart.
All you have to do now is barre the bottom (again, lowest in pitch) three strings, and move them wherever you want to create power chords.
The 6th string is the lowest in pitch, not the highest. To tune to this, just hold down the 7th fret of the 6th string and play the 6th and 5th strings together, then tune the 6th string down until the pitches are the same, or they sound a like.
To tune back up if you have a distortion, fuzz, or overdrive pedal (or have a good ear): Place your finger behind the 2nd fret on the fifth string and strike the 5th and 6th strings together. Let them ring and again listen for the vibration as you tune the guitar back up to standard EADGBE tuning.
If you own a distortion, fuzz, or overdrive pedal (or have a good ear): play the 6th and 5th string together. While the two strings are ringing, slowly tune the 6th string down. You will notice a fast vibration in sound (which is caused by conflicting phase shifting in the harmonics) as the 6th string moves out of E and towards D. If you drop the pitch slowly, you will notice the vibration slow down, then stop as you reach D on the 6th string.
