GUITAR TUNING

Here you will find instruction on how to tune a guitar.

One of the most important things to do before you begin playing is tuning your guitar. It is easiest to just buy a guitar tuner, they don't cost a lot and they are the best way to tune your guitar with 100% accuracy. However, if you don't have a guitar tuner and you want to tune your guitar, this is the easiest method that I have found.

We start at the top string which is the 6th string, this is the fattest string on your guitar, and when it is played open its an E note. You will then match this note to an E note from another instrument or a tuning fork. All you do is turn the tuning peg until the note on the guitar sounds like the E note that you've just played. Once you have that first note you proceed in an orderly manner tuning one string after another. Press down on the 5th fret of the 6th string...then play the 5th string open. The 6th string with the 5th fret pressed down is the same note as the 5th string played open. Turn the tuning peg until the 5th string sounds like the 6th string with the 5th fret depressed.
