saw a thread created by guitar boy asking people how they tune their guitar. He used this method with this chart.

e--------------0------

B-----------0-5--------

G--------0-4-----------

D-----0-5--------------

A--0-5-----------------

E-5-------------------

Im intrested to know how to use this to tune a guitar becuase i would love to be able to tune a guitar without a tuner, It would just feel like another step in the right direction.

If you have your low E string in tune, you can tune your open A string to the A found on the 5th fret of the low E string. Then your D string to the D found on the 5th fret of the A string, and so on. Basically every open string should be the same as the string under it played on the 5th fret, the only exception is the B string you have to fret the G string on the 4th fret to get the B note to tune your B string.



E--------------------------0--
B--------------------0----5---
G--------------0----4---------
D--------0----5---------------
A--0----5---------------------
E-5---------------------------


It might be easier to understand with spaces separating the different steps.

I thought it would thanks for confirming, only thing is how do you start with the E string tuned in the first place?

I rarely use this method because my ear isn't great but when I do use it I normally just don't mess with my E string. I use a tuner and I usually check the tuning of my guitar about every other time I sit down to play so my guitars are almost always right on anyway. I don't think you could force my les paul to go out of tune and my acoustic is the same way. To answer your question I guess you would have to use a tuner or train your ear to get the low E in tune.

If you are playing on your own then it doesnt matter what note the E string is tuned to, providing the others are tuned relative to it then it will be ok.

That's the way I used to tune my guitar, and if I'm just practising on my own then I still use that method to check that the strings are in tune relative to each other.
