I'm thinking of tuning my guitar up instead of down. But I'm wondering, how much tension can the strings withstand? How high up can I go before they snap? I'll probably just try F standard, but I'm afraid of breaking my only set of strings.

Well, I was more interested in raising the string tension over actually going to F Standard.

Didn't want to make a new thread, but I was wondering if it's better to tune an electric guitar with or without an amp...?

anyone wanna help me out here if ya have the time.

I know the whole idea how standard tuning works. Problem is someone who claims to know how to play wont get off me about what they claim is the right way.



D------------0--------------------
A-----0------5-------------------
E-----5--------------------------- (so on and so forth, starting at low e)

but this person who swears they are teaching me the right way dose it like this

D-----------------0------------------
A------0---------3------------------
E------3----------------------------(what? starting at high e?)

Is there any basis behind this. Like some other tuning that ive never heard of?

somebady please help me out here?

Unless he is in some weird alternate tuning, then the 5-0 method starting at low E is correct, and your friend is wrong.

I believe I made up my own tuning (don't shoot me if I didn't) but I don't know what it is. Any theory buffs want to figure out what this is because I don't know. I do know though that it is awesome and sounds very peaceful. Here it is:

(Low to High):
