How To Tune Your Guitar The Smart Way

Getting In Tune.

Being in tune is one of the most important things to make sure of when playing guitar. It’s what makes the difference in what your playing sound good or bad. Even one string being out of tune can make your chords sound bad when you strum them. That’s why it is vitally important that you get a tuner and learn to tune your guitar. No matter if it’s acoustic or electric. The video below shows it on electric, but this kind of tuner works on both electric & acoustic.

Always Check Your Tuning.

You should check your tuning before every practice session. It’s also a good habit to check your tuning during a session once in awhile to make sure your still in tune. Especially if you do a lot of bending. This usually comes from playing guitar solos. Or if you tend to hit the guitar strings hard while you play rhythm.

Lesson Conclusion.

The right kind of tuner can make the process of tuning your guitar a lot more enjoyable and help you to get into a habit of doing so to make sure your always in tune during your practice session. For tuning your guitar I recommend a SNARK tuner. This is a simple “clip on tuner” that works very well & I highly recommend you get one or one like it.

Until our next lesson, take care.
