More on Guitar Tuning

Just following up on yesterday.
After I posted in the blog I found this. link
Rather good I thought.
A bit further down that page is a rather neat 1,2,3 of how to do it.

How to tune a guitar.
Tuning the guitar is vital to sounding good. Here are some simple instructions that explain guitar tuning basics. The open strings of a guitar from the thickest to thinest are as follows:

  • E - the thickest or lowest sounding string is known as the 6th string
  • A - is the 5th
  • D - is the 4th
  • G - is the 3rd
  • B - is the 2nd
  • E - the thinest or highest is the 1st
For example
The A string....
Place the first finger of your left hand just behind the fifth fret on the bottom E string. That’s an A note. Keep your finger on that fret. Now pick the fifth and six strings in turn, gently adjusting the fifth string tuning peg until the two notes are the same.

Humm quite good.
