Hi, this is Wesley Winford, and today I'll be showing you how to tune your guitar down a whole octave. How to do that is make sure you have a good tuner and, but before you do this I would recommend that you have probably I wouldn't recommend doing a Tele, I mean really low tunings like that would be more for like probably heavier guitars like a Les Paul or so and also you would probably want to go with some really thick strings or you know, or a baritone guitar but I can just demonstrate how to do that right now and all you do is just take that E note and you're going to drop it down. It's going to be really low until it gets down to that low E. You might have to hit harmonics to kind of get your tuner to register the note since it's so low. So that's about where it is. You might have to, you might want to use a tuner that's more, that can pick up the notes better rather than the standard chromatic tuner and once you get that note down then you can just go through the rest of the strings like that. The tricky thing is getting it right on tune but if you have the right kind of guitar and right kind of strings it would be easier and that was how to tune your guitar down an octave lower.
