Guitar Help - Tuning Low E To D.

Recommended Posts

Dont have a electronic tuner yet. I'm trying to play "The Messenger" by Tea Party. On the tab this is what it says i need to do:


"TUNNING: The Tea Party has had some experiance in some

wierd tunnings. This song is in double drop D. Tune your

low and high E strings down to D. To tune down your low E,

tune it on the 7th fret, to tune your high E hit the harmonic on the

12th fret of the 4th string (D) and tune the high E to match that pitch."


I think i know how to do the high E part, but how do i tune the low E to D? Don't quite understand his instructions.
