Knowing where the octaves are in relation to the low C string is really helpful, as it will help you find chords faster.
Open strings are always nice to use, and in a C major context the G, B, E strings all work well. However, in a minor sounding metal context you might want to avoid the open B, and the open high E, and use the other open strings instead, especially the G string and the low C.
If you plan on tuning down like this often, it might be a good idea to use a low E string that's thicker than normal. In this video I'm using a .056 gauge E string to get a little more resistance. The E string you get in a standard pack of .010's is a .046 gauge.
You can even get custom sets that are called something like "Heavy bottom", where the D, A, and E strings get increasingly heavier in relation to a normal set of strings.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
