I'm currently working to improve my barre chords, so yesterday I decided I would tune everything down a 1/2 step to releave a little srting pressure, hoping this would make things a little easier, just curious if anyone else has tried this when learning barre chords

I never tried it but it sounds like a good idea. A bit of warning though tuning down a half step can often times mess up your neck relief. It is ok if you plan on leaving it tuned down just go get it setup properly. But it is not a good idea to constantly tune down a half step and then tune back to standard again. Pick one or the other.
