Love And Death: The Abandoning

Tuning: Drop G# (G#,D#,G#,C#,F#,A#,D#)

Note: I play it on a 7-string, but the band actually uses 6-string baritones,
      but the tuning is the same so you can play it on either one.

What would the tuning be on a 6-string?

G#,D#,G#,C#,F,A#

It's the same except the 2nd string is tuned down an additional half step to compensate for being a 6-string. It's essentially Drop A tuning down another half step.
