Need to Learn How to manually TUNE A GUITAR? No problem! It's
something ALL Guitar Players need to know.
Let's say you have already tuned the top string (6th string).
Step 1:Press down on the 6th string at the 5th fret and you will
get an A note. This note should correspond to an open 5th string
as shown in the diagram.
Step 2:Strike the 6th string, 5th fret and an open 5th string.
Both strings should be exactly the same. If not, the 5th string
must be adjusted.
A good tip is to hold your finger on the fret and use your other
hand to twist the string. Both at the same time. Do this until
both strings sound identical.
These 2 easy steps can be repeated for the rest of the strings.
With the 5th string, press down on the 5th string on the 5th
fret and you will get a D. This note should correspond to an
open 4th string. Therefore when you strike the 5th string, 5th
fret and an open 4th string, both strings should sound exactly
the same. If not, the 4th string must be adjusted.
The 3rd string however must be played at the 4th fret in order
to equal an open 2nd string. Many guitarists use this tuning
technique when they suspect a string has gone out of tune.
