Archive for the “How To Tune A Guitar” Category

Many new guitar players have trouble tuning their guitars. Here we’re going to talk about some easy ways to overcome this problem.

First of all, I recommend that you use an electric guitar tuner when you’re first starting out, but eventually you’ll want to learn to tune by ear, so you can hear for yourself when your guitar is out of tune.

Standard tuning for a guitar goes E-A-D-G-B-E from the bass string to the high E. A very common way to tune by ear is to tune the low bass string to an E.

Next hold down the 5th fret on the bass string, which is an A, and tune the next string to that pitch. Move down to the A string, hold down the 5th fret again which is a D, and tune the 3rd string to D.

Repeat the process for the 3rd string, the 5th fret is a G, so tune the 4th string to the G. On the G string the 4th fret is a B. Hold down the 4th fret and tune the 4th string to B.

Now move down to the 4th string, and hold down the 5th fret, which is an E. Tune the 5th string to E. You can also use the low E to tune the high E string.

If you have problems you can use an electric guitar tuner.
