I bought my second set of Low G Tenor Strings after snapping my first because I was tuning it as a High G, haha. Well, I'd like to know how to tune a Low G since I never really heard it.

I know that it's going to sound lower than the c string. I bet there is a YouTube video meant for low g tuning with their coresponding tones

I've searched online and seems like everything is for High G. I have a tuner, should I just tune it to the first G lower than a high?

I am pretty sure if you have it tuned correctly the 5th fret, on the low G string, should sound like an open C string.

That's right. Just tune the C,E, and A strings normally then tune the G string 5th fret to the open C string. I use Tuna Pitch tuning software on my MAC I think it was a free app you can download it.

Thanks everyone. 5th fret on the C string helps as well as my tuner tuning it to the lower G (duh!). :)
