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.

Filip Tomiša https://vimeo.com/249653738 This is how I tune my guitar. I use an app called GuitarTuna. I think it's pretty good. I was using the app on my old phone because I had to record it with my current phone so it was a bit laggy and the tuning might not be perfect but it works pretty great on a decent phone.

Filip Tomiša Also I noticed that the third string (G) is the most common one to go out of tune. Why is that?

Daniel Sobota I use the same app and it works great for me. It's pretty neat because there are chord practices on it as well.

Peter Mrozik https://youtu.be/WIgAbLPn6fA Here's how I tune my guitar. I forgot to mention in the video that the tuner does automatically turn off so even if you forget to turn it off it will turn off but you should turn it off right away to conserve the battery.
