so i've got a little question. I have recently been trying out tuning down a whole step. i understand the scales i'm playing, what ever i'm playing is just a whole step lower, as in an E minor scale would now be a D minor scale on the same frets.

so my question is what happens with the cords? if i play a normal E cord position with the frets down the strings being 022100, now that the tuning is lower, what cord does that make that? is it a D cord in the position of E or something? what's it called? and is it right to use the normal cord shapes the same at before when i was in E standard tuning?

Any more D standard tuning helpful hints would be nice too! im completely new to this form of tuning, but i love this heavy-ness haha smile.gif

When you're tuned down a whole step everything is 1 whole step down from what it used to be, Emaj is Dmaj, Gmaj is Fmaj etc... It's perfectly fine to use the same chords you used to when you were in standard tuning, and the chords are called exactly what they are, so your open Emaj chord is now a open Dmaj chord, simple.
