Other common Drop D variations

  • Drop D down a 1/2 step: From standard Drop D tuning, tune all of the strings down a 1/2 step (like they were1 fret lower)
  • Drop D down a whole step: From standard Drop D tuning, tune all of the strings down a whole step (like they were 2 frets lower). This is sometimes called Drop C by mistake. Drop C would mean to drop only the 6th string down to a C.
