I find that my vocal range tends to work better when I tune my guitar down one full step from standard and start writing songs from here. Obvioulsy, I'm worried about tuning issues and lack of string tension when I go to record. Is there a possible way of making a guitar tuned down a full step have the same tension as strings tuned to standard pitch? Would cutting say, an inch off of each string allow me to do this? Hopefully I'm making sense. Thanks for any replies.
