How to tune a Guitar
There are a variety of ways to tune gutiar strings - pitch pipes, 'by ear' to a keyboard, or by electronic guitar tuner.
A guitar tuner is the easiest. You can either buy these, or its possible on many smart phones to download a tuner app.
I use this tuner which is made by Korg. A good PC based tuner can be downloaded for free here. Waves is a good android app tuner.
To tune the strings start with the thick string and tune to the following notes :
E (Thick string)
E (Thin String)
If you want a quick way to remember the strings, 'Eddie Ate Dynamite Good Bye Eddie' !
Be careful not to over tune or the strings will snap. Always point the guitar away from your face just in case this happens !
If you get stuck bring the gutiar to the lesson and I'll tune it for you.
