When using the basic tuning method for standard tuning, you would play the 5th fret on the 6th string and tune the 5th string open to that. In Drop D tuning, you are going to play the 7th fret on the 6th string, then tune the 5th string open to that. From there, you will tune everything the same as standard tuning. You could also tune the rest of the stings using harmonics.
