How To Tune a Guitar
Simply put, if your guitar isnâ€™t tuned properly then youâ€™ll find it hard for things to right while youâ€™re playing. Itâ€™s a must to do it the right way and learn how from the very first time that you pick up the guitar to learn how to play.
When youâ€™re first starting to play, youâ€™ll typically be using standard tuning on a six-string guitar. From the lowest (thickest) string to the highest (thinnest) string, the notes are laid out as follows:
â€¢ Sixth string: E
â€¢ Fifth string: A
â€¢ Fourth string: D
â€¢ Third string: G
â€¢ Second string: B
â€¢ First string: E
For each string to sound at the right pitch, it has to have the right amount of tension on it. That is adjusted by using the tuners that are on the headstock of your guitar. Itâ€™s pretty easy to see how they work – pluck a string and then turn its tuner in both directions. Youâ€™ll hear the pitch get higher as more tension is applied, and get lower as tension is removed and the strings are loosened up.
