If you don't have a chromatic tuner, a nice little trick is to use a capo, place it across the first fret then tune your guitar to standard tuning. Remove the capo and voila, you are tuned down one half step smile.gif

Plus you can put the capo back on and be in standard tuning, just remember to play in relation to the capo, so move everything up one fret (hope this made sense) I do this a fair bit with my acoustic smile.gif Makes switching tunings easy and quick.

Great tip rok! smile.gif

Also - for those who play along with guitar pro rather than the videos (ie if you have a slow internet where viewing the videos is almost impossible to do), you can change the tuning of the transcription to standard tuning. I can't remember which heading its under but after selecting normal tuning, the program will ask you if you want to translate the file - click no as clicking yes will change the finger pattern.

I had truble with this myself, but i think i have found the way...
1. Match the note on the 6th fret of the 6th string to the open 5th string.
2. Match the note on the open 5th string with the 5th fret of the 6th string.
3. Match the note on the open 4th string with the 5th fret of the 5th string.
4. Match the note on the open 3rd string with the 5th fret of the 4th string.
5. Match the note on the open 2nd string with the 4th fret of the 3rd string.
6. Match the note on the open 1st string with the 5th fret of the 2nd string.
