I imagine there's a way to do this and I just don't know how since I just started using this software, but I'm trying to play songs that have E(flat) standard tuning. For example I have a CD filled with Slayer songs and I know most of their songs are in this tuning. The ones that I looked at that should be in E(flat) are tuned to D# standard, and it doesn't sound entirely right. If anyone could help me out with this I would be most grateful.

Hi Anonymous,

You need to go to track properties (path /Track/Properties). From there you can set the starting note of each string. And, if you really want that authentic Kerry King guitar sound, you can also add a seventh string as well! :)

Kind regards,

Ignatz

Thanks for the advice Ignatz, but I already figured that out before I posted my query. I tried to see if I could change the tuning to Eb, but as I was scrolling through the choices it skips from D# to E, and then straight to F, but there's no Eb or E# for that matter. Do I possibly have to set the offset a few notches just so the tuning will sound like Eb standard? It frustrates me that all possible tunes are not available. What's going to be a bigger pain is getting the tuning to sound out 1/4 step down from E standard for Megadeth's first two albums.

Hi Anonymous,

Eb is the same as D#, Ab is the same as G#, Db is the same as C#, Gb is the same as F#, and Bb is the same as A#. And "Eb standard tuning" would therefore be the same as "D# standard tuning".

Although, it is confusing to have to translate Eb to D#, etc. you will be able to get exactly the tuning that you are after.

Unlike the Chord Editor, Track Properties doesn't allow you to toggle the notes from sharp (#) to flat (b), but once you've set the strings as D#,G#,C#,F#,A#,d# you will be able to enter the flat chords you want (without having to translate into sharp chords), and if you set the correct Key then music notation and tab will be as you want it.

You can achieve the same thing by leaving the strings in "E standard tuning" and putting in an offset of -!.

All the above is about taking the strings down half a step. Your ambition to take the strings down a quarter of a step, I believe, can't be achieved on TuxGuitar at present.

Kind regards,

Ignatz

Thanks for the elaboration Ignatz. As I mentioned in my OP I just got the software about 2 days ago. I guess for 1/4 step down songs I'll just have to keep it at standard. Thanks again for all the information!
