I’ve looked all over the internet and have found nothing. There’s lots of songs i want to play, but just don’t sound right because i don’t know how to tune my guitar to drop C.
To tune a guitar to drop C, or any other tuning is very simple when you use a tuner. Of course, it depends on the tuner that you have. Some tuners are more advanced than others, and have more options, others are simpler.
However, here is what you want to achieve with drop C:
C G C F A D.
So let’s say you pluck your 6th (Low E in Standard tuning) and it shows E on your tuner. Just flatten the string by turning the tuning pegs until you see the letter C on your tuner. Then pluck the 5th string (if the guitar is in standard tuning, it should say “A” on your tuner). then you unwind the string once again until it says “G”.
Do the same for all strings. I recommend tuning it in standard first, then unwinding the strings until you get the desired note for each string.
Hope this helps.
