hi all. my question relates to tuning down a 7 string guitar. i want to be able to play 1 finger power chords on the 7th and 6th strings, like drop d on a standard guitar, but im at a loss as what to tune to, if a dropped the b to a, would that work?

Thanks!

drop the low b a full step down and you have the drop tuning for a 7string so the b to a is right
