    Some people like to tune to an A 320 tuning as opposed to A 440. They believe that tuning A to 320 cycles per second is more in line with the frequencies generated by our bodies and the earth. Before the invention of the piano and various standard tunings, humanity generally tuned to the A 320 as a natural go-to.

      For the record, tuning to A = 320Hz would lower the pitch about one-half OCTAVE.

    depends on how married you are to equal temperament.... but there is a name for being a quarter step down- it's called being out of tune.

    I play a number of pieces with each string tuned a semitone either up or down (↓E♭ ↓A♭ ↑E♭ ↑A♭ ↑C ↓E♭), but I don't see any real utility for fractions of a semitone.

    E flat standard tuning the next step down from E standard. There is no quarter step.

    Of course - there's 1/4 step down if that's what you really want for some reason.

    Probably, but you would have to use a kapo...then again there's 1/4 tuning

      Dark Alchemist - it's spelled "capo" and that's the least of your problems. Please explain how one can use a capo to lower the pitch.
