Sorry about your strings, man. Here is how to tune your guitar.

E down to Eb
A up to Bb
D down to Bb
G up to Bb
B down to Bb
E up to F

or

E down to D
A leave at A
D down to A
G up to A
B down to A
E up to E#

And use a capo on the first fret so you won't have to tune your G all the way up to Bb. I hope this helps.
