Half Step Down Tuning

One of the easiest tuning to experiment with is Half step down. Just lower all the strings by a half step, and you’ll have this tuning. So instead of E A D G B E, you’ll have D# C# F# A# D#. Everything you play in this tuning is similar to standard tuning, just that you’ll get a heavier sound without any effort. This is also a great tuning for singers who can sing comfortably at lower notes.
