In this lesson, we explain how to tune your guitar to the standard A440 pitch.


Syn’s Tips

Unfortunately, this is an essential skill you must know in order to play the guitar. The guitar goes out of tune quite often and if you are spending a good amount of time practicing, you may need to tune your guitar a few times a day!

Can you guys upload some videos in the "Lesson Comments" section below demonstrating how you do this? I know everyone does this a little bit different so take the time to figure out the right way for you!

Also, since there are so many different types of guitars, can you guys upload videos demonstrating how to change the strings on yours? Another unfortunate side effect of the guitar is that the strings break every once in a while or just get rusty and unusable. Knowing how to change the strings is another essential skill to know if you play the guitar.

Josh Lightner Kye, the frets are numbered from the nut (tuning end) to the body. So when you are looking at the tabulature (tabs) your actually seeing the six strings as well as which fret to play. Hope this helps, I have been playing for about three years and I am still learning. Best of luck.

Carol Seeds My dad always tuned by ear and I never could figure out how he was doing it! Now I am almost CERTAIN this is what he was doing all those years! So awesome! I have been using Guitartuna and now I can do this too!
