Tune Your Guitar The Easy Way

This post was adapted from a guest post I wrote for my friend Taz over at GuitarPlayerWorld.com. I’m sure he won’t mind me sharing it here.

So you want to tune your guitar, but you’re tired of fiddling with tuning pegs and turning that little screw on the bridge? Well I’ve got good news, today we’re going to learn how to tune your guitar with one easy trick!

First you’ll need:

A tuning fork (or some other source of sound tuned to A). If you don’t have one, use your imagination and find something else that makes an A note (maybe a piano, or someone singing). If you can’t find anything making an A note, listen to this sound clip:

Now that you have found an A note let’s get started! First play the string as normal. Now touch the fifth fret. Sounds the same right? It should, because this is a perfect fifth harmonic (an octave above the open string). Now try it on all of your strings:

I’ve been playing guitar for about 7 years now, and have never been able to tune my guitar by ear. I’ve always relied on a tuner for tuning. I’ve also heard of this method that involves plucking the bottom string, then matching one of the thinner strings to it. The problem is, it never works for me.

Today I discovered a simple way to tune your guitar using the middle strings. You simply find the note “E” and match the remaining strings to that note. Here’s how:

To tune your guitar with a tuner you must first plug your guitar into the tuner. If you have an acoustic guitar you must use a pickup. When a note is being played the needle and lights on the tuner will go up and down until it becomes still, when it has become still then it is in tune.

To tune your guitar without a tuner you must first know the notes of each string. The E string is at the bottom and the thinnest string, the A string is above that, then D string, G string, B string and finally the E string at the top and thickest. The E strings are tuned to eachother in unison.

The A string is tuned to the 5th fret on the low E string. To do this put your finger onto the fifth fret of the low e (6th) string and pick both strings, adjust the tuning key until they sound exactly alike.

The D string is tuned to the 5th fret on A String.

The G String is tuned to the 4th fret on D String.

Finally, The B String is tuned to 2nd fret on G String.

There are a number of ways to tune your guitar. I will describe what I consider the easiest way to do it.

1. Get a good tuner.

This is the most important part of tuning your guitar. If you don’t have a tuning machine, then it will be very hard to keep your instrument in tune. There are electronic tuners that plug into the sound hole of your guitar, and there are also tuners that clip on to the end of the head stock near the strings. These work great, but they can be expensive (around $40). A cheaper alternative is using an online tuner such as this one: Online Guitar Tuner

2. Tune your 6th string to E.

You can use either an electronic tuner or an online one for this step. Simply adjust the tuning peg until it is in tune with “E”.

3. Tune your 5th string to A.

To do this, fret the 5th string at the 5th fret and pluck it while adjusting it until it matches the pitch of the 6th string open (unfretted). Once you have them matched, adjust it slightly higher until they match again and stop when they match a second time. This method works because the two notes

Tuning your guitar can be a pain and to be honest, most people probably dread it. It can be difficult to keep in tune and if you’re just starting out, you may break a few strings while you get the hang of it. It’s important to keep in mind that this is normal and tuning your guitar actually gets easier the more you do it. In order to help you get into the habit of tuning your guitar before you play, I’ve put together a few tips that will help make the process as painless as possible.

The first thing you need to know about tuning your guitar is that there are two different methods for tuning it. The first method is by ear which means that you need to know how each string should sound when played correctly. This method can be difficult for beginners so I recommend using an electronic tuner or smartphone app instead (more on these later).

The second method is by using an electronic tuner or smartphone app. The advantage of using these tools is that they take all of the guesswork out of tuning your guitar. Using them is simple: just pluck each string and then adjust until the light turns green or the app tells you that it’s in tune!

The last thing I’ll mention here is that both methods

If you are a guitar player and you want to learn how to tune your guitar, here is the article for you. In this article I’m going to tell you a secret way of tuning your guitar. I’m sure that there are many people out there who don’t know how to tune their guitars correctly, so I’m going to teach you how.

This is something that most people don’t know: The best way to learn how to tune your guitar is by ear. You can get a tuning machine that tells you exactly what notes are in between the strings on your guitar, or you can use the method described below.

To tune my own guitar by ear, I use the following method: First I start with my G string (the thickest one), then go from low E down C

The first step in learning to tune your guitar is to understand how to tune the strings. You may be able to learn how to tune a guitar by ear, but you can also use a tuner or tuning app. Most guitars are tuned with a standard E tuning, so that is what we’ll be going over here.

The first step in learning how to tune a guitar is understanding how each string produces its note. The six strings on the guitar have different thicknesses, and these thicknesses produce their respective notes. The thinnest string has the highest pitch, while the thickest string has the lowest pitch.

There are two types of tuners: digital and mechanical. They both work in much the same way, but they produce their results differently. A digital tuner can be plugged into a computer or smartphone via USB or Bluetooth; it then sends signals back to the device that tells it which strings need to be tuned up or down. A mechanical tuner uses a needle that moves in response to changes in pitch; when it reaches its maximum point (i.e., when all of the strings are tuned), it stops moving and emits an audible tone for you to hear.
