Tuner Tuning

There are other ways to tune your guitar manually without the aid of an electronic devices. The simplest way is to use a method called Relative Tuning. This is a method used by comparing two notes at a time and adjusting the higher string.

The key to relative tuning is to make sure your E string (the largest) is in tune, for that you can use another guitar, a piano or a tuning fork.

Here are the steps in tuning you guitar.

1. Lace a finger on the 5th fret of the 6th string (the largest string) and play the note.

2. Next, play the 5th string Open (without holding down any frets). If you are I tune, these two notes should sound exactly the same. You can even play both of those notes at the same time and listen for the imbalance or "fighting" of the notes. This almost sounds like a pulsating moan when not in tune. If you hear this, you're out of tune.

3. Adjust the tuning peg for the 5th string so that, when played open, it makes the same sound as the 5th fretted 6th string.

4. Place your finger on the 5th fret of the 5th string and repeat this process with the 4th string "Open".

5. Repeat this process for the 4th and 3rd strings.

6. When you reach the 2nd string, things change slightly. Instead of placing your finger on the 5th fret of the 3rd string when adjusting the 2nd string, place it on the 4th fret. Make adjustments accordingly.

7. To tune the 1st and final string, go back to previous method of playing the 5th fret of the 2nd string.

As you can see, each string is tuned according to the string before it, so it's important to make sure the string is completely in tune before moving on to the next one. Once you're done, your guitar should be in tune and ready to play. This is a great technique to learn as you may have the need to tune your guitar when a tuner is not available.
