Tuning Your Guitar

Tuning your guitar can be a little overwhelming, especially if you’re a beginner. It’s always good to have a music store show you, or tune it for you prior to sending you home with an un-tuned guitar.

There are several ways you can tune a guitar and I recommend trying all of them.

  • Using an electronic tuner (Here’s a link to a great online tuner if you have a mic) CLICK HERE
  • Comparing to another guitar
  • Using ear and intervals to tune
  • Harmonics

The strings ring notes and there supposed to be be in this order

E   A  D  g  b e (high)

6   5   4   3   2  1

The big E is the one closest to your face, and that is called the sixth string. The high e is the little steel string closest to the ground and it is the highest string. It is always called the first string. A lot of people get that mixed up, thinking that the first string is the one closest toy our face.

You will eventually see tablature, and it is written like this

1e——————EASTER

2b——————BUNNY

3g——————GOT

4D——————DRUNK

5A——————AFTER

6E——————EASTER
