If you close the note on the A string at the 7th fret,
that would be an E note i don't think you want to tune,
your E string to E its aready tuned to E .
The D note is on the 5th fret A string i think that would,
be better to use to tune your low E to droped D .
or just use the open D while strikeing the low E then ,
slowly turn your low E string tuner key down by lowering the pitch unill they sound the same.
P:S Keith Richards used the droped G tuning years,
ago so do alot of country guitarests today .
they use both Droped D and Droped G plus they tune,
the high E down to D .
