    Drop C Guitar Tuning: C G C F A D

    Drop C Tuning is very similar to Drop D, if you tuned to Drop D then dropped everything 2 semi-tones down you would be in Drop C. That being said it gives us some clues to how we can accomplish it.

    Open C Guitar Tuning: C G C G C E

    A popular 12 string guitar tuning but also used on 6 strings as well. When you strike the open strings you will get a deep rich C Major Chord.

    Well, if you're gonna drop C, you're probably gonna want a higher gage of string. I'd say maybe 10-12. Ask your local guitar guy, he'll probably know more. On the back of my favored strings (D'Addario nickel wound) it will have the tension weight. Regardless of what strings you chose, don't remove any springs. If you're adding a really thick strings, you may -need- more springs. If you're gonna stick with 9-10's (the lightest gauge, and what guitars traditionally come with) you'll be fine. Just make sure like you said that you make the bridge even with the face of the guitar. It also helps if you tune your E, B, and G strings just a tad sharp. The thicker bass strings will take tension off of those. Good luck!
