Drop D tuning is probably the most common type of re-tuning you are going to come across on the guitar, but there are many other ways to re-tune the open strings (this is called scordatura) and they all bring up the same problem. The problem is that once you have tuned the string to the correct pitch it will start to go out of tune quite quickly, pulling sharp or flat depending on whether you tuned the string down or up.

To solve this problem I have provided you with a brief tutorial on how to get those strings to stay in tune once they get there.
