tune your guitar

Instructions: To tune your guitar, first you need to know what tuning you want the guitar to be in. The standard tuning for 6 string guitars is EADGBE. If you want to tune it in standard form then you don't have to change any of the notes above, because it is initially set to EADGBE. If you want a different tuning then try some of the presets on the right side of the guitar tuner. If you don't find the tuning your looking for then you have to adjust the notes manually. Once you have set up the notes and have the correct tuning. Then click on the buttons one at a time and then tune your corresponding guitar string to the note. The thickest string on the guitar is the 6th string, and the thinnest is the 1st string. It tells you what string it is on each button. Also, be careful on how high you set the notes, because I have included notes on the tuner that would probably snap average guitar strings. Good luck.

Hal Leonard Guitar Method

Tip: Make several passes tuning each of the strings. For example you might have noticed that if you have tuned all the strings once, and then back to the first one you tuned, it might be off a little bit. This is because you are increasing or decreasing the tension on each of the strings as you tune it and the instrument's body might bend ever so slightly due to this difference in tension. This causes the other strings to slightly change in pitch. So make sure you keep on checking and tuning the strings until all are in tune, so make several passes. See more tips at the Guitar Tuning Tips page.

Now that you have your guitar tuned, you can get to playing it. The Hal Leonard Guitar Method is a great learning resource for those who are learning to play the guitar.

Yeah! This is very useful and like right on dot. However, the individual tuning the guitar has to have some idea regarding the fretboard.

you only have sharps and it would be great if you could have flats because to tune a half step down or even a full step you need flats because other wise if you use sharps it tuning them up not down

Your tuner works perfect. I was able to tune my guitar quickly. I'm coming back to my guitar playing after a long time away so I feel like I'm starting from scratch. My problem is that I am a soprano playing an acoustic guitar with light, bronze strings. I usually try to use the 5th fret method to tune my guitar higher. Still, in order to find a cord I can comfortably sing in, I have to put my capo so far down the frets that it leaves me little room for my fingers and I don't like the sound of the strings. How can I tune my guitar higher than the standard tuning so that I don't have to put my capo so far down the frets? Do you have a suggestion? Also, you were right. I broke my bottom E string starting with the standard tuning then using the 5th fret method trying to go higher on my own. Thank you for any help you can give me. Primula

I like the guitar tuner on this sight but it won't show up on my iPad or iPhone, is it not compatible? Any help is appreciated. Chris

I like & love this online guitar tuner. Thanks for posting. I use it all the time when my guitar is out of tune.

After wading through all the advertisements I still haven't determined how to use the tuner. If you don't watch your fingers with your touch screen you'll end up at ITT Tech or some other place. It was quite an adventure just trying to get to the right page then to find that I can't determine how to use it with my phone. A wasted 15 minutes. Too bad. It's a nice concept with less than adequate execution.

This tuner is great for adjusting intonation on guitars - for that alone I'd recommend it to anyone...

BoomBoomBox [01/23/2014 05:41]

@lucidangel You do realise, for example D# is the same as Eb. C# is the same as Db etc... lol.
