In this video I explain in depth how to use a clip on tuner. These are the most popular tuners on the market right now. A lot of beginners have trouble tuning their guitars so I thought this short tutorial would be helpful for a lot of people.
Beginners have a lot of trouble tuning because they aren’t sure which note each string is supposed to be tuned to. The main problem is that the tuner doesn’t know what string you are on. It will only guess which string you are tuning based on the pitch it is reading. This means that you, the guitar player, has to know what each strings correct pitch is supposed to be. In standard tuning the guitar string names are 6-E, 5-A, 4-D, 3-G, 2-B, 1-E. A really easy way to remember this is to memorize this phrase… Eddie Ate Dynamite Good Bye Eddie. Another important thing to remember is that the 6th string E is the biggest string. A lot of students get confused on which string is which number. Always remember that the biggest string is the biggest number. The biggest or thickest string on guitar is the 6th string which is the low E. Biggest string = the biggest number… The smallest or thinnest string on the guitar is the 1st string which is the high E. Smallest string = smallest number.
