Do you know a way to tune your guitar without a tuner or piano, by just comparing the other strings the other strings with the first one? It would be very helpful to me.

so if you have the first string in tune or want to compare them to this string you take this string (let's take the thickest (E) for example) you take the 5th string of this string which is an E and you compare the sound to the string beneath it (also an A) if the A-string is higher then the 5th fret on the E you played you tune the A-string , if lower you turn it up till it sounds exactly the same then you take the fifth fret of the a and do the same with the d string beneath it then the fifth fret of d together with the g beneath it, then you have to watch out , you have to take the 4th fret on the g string and compare it with the b string beneath it and then again 5th fret of the b string and compare it with the e string beneath it . now your strings are in tune with eachother what does not mean they are tune with other ppl who are tuned this way , so if you play together with other ppl it's better to tune with tuner/piano

hope this is what you want to know:)

No love for the B string there. I once saw someone who tuned their guitar using 5ths, but never did figure out what they were doing.

You can tune B with harmonics easy. Hit the 7th fret natural harmonic on your low E string, then hit the 12 fret natural harmonic on the be string.

Then, you just use a piano, a tuner, an electric device designated for that purpose, or some other instrument that doesn't need to be tuned, like the flute. That's how I do it, I have a friend who plays the flute, she give's an e tone, and I tune my first string based on that tone, an than tune the other strings based on the first one, MightyDave, LLynix and Jack, just showed how you do that.

I tried it out, but looks like it's not working here, it's more like a third string, but it could be just the guitar, cause I haven't tuned it with a tuneer, piano or something.

yep the telephone is an A most car horns are F's

also i don't know if anyone touched on this but even if you don't have a great ear you can check to see when the string you are tuning resonates with the in tune string.

I want to know if anyone tries to tune to their car horn

For about 4 bucks you can buy a pitchpipe at any music store. Carry it around in your case. All phone tones are not A440 (mine is an F) I've been playing over 50 years. Tuning is something you get better and better at, but it is always a struggle, because guitars are so rarely REALLY in tune. Everything you change (tighten 1 string, for instance) changes all the other strings. The best thing you can do is to really care about being in tune, all the time, and listen. Your ear will develop and eventually you will have at least one tone in your head you can rely on. If your guitar won't get in tune, or just sounds funny when it is in tune, it may need to have the intonation set. Take it your guitar store guy and he'll fix you up. By the way, the tuner at the top of this page is accurate.
