Going to drop D tuning.
You will hear me play with my right hand thumb the 6th (E) and then the 4th (D) string slowly back and forth.  I tune the E string down a whole step until it matches with the D string.  I do this relatively quickly, making sure not to play two notes at the same time, but rather playing the first note E (the origin)  and then the second note D (the goal).  Past experience has shown me that a visual reference might help:  Turn the tuning machine one third to almost a half turn clockwise (20-25 minutes) and that will get you to the general vicinity of matching your D's for drop D tuning.
