How did you learn to remember the different tuning sets, as I'm pretty sure most of you had a phrase for remembering, for example:

EADGBE - Eddy Ate Dynamite, Good Bye Eddy

How do you remember your tuner-sets (fu I'm swedish, don't know the words for these things in english)?

Also, if I'm in the wrong forum, sorry.

I just remembered the letters themselves...I learned to associate the strings with the letters.

Probably seeing them repeated in tabs helps.

Just memorized the words =/

It's wierd how we seem to remember things if we complicate them more.

I remember our keyboardist had a whole bunch of one's for remembering the musical notation ones.

I just use the "every good boy deserves F.A.C.E." because face is the spaces, but his ones where for the bass cleffs and whatnot, and they were something like "good horses **** grass" or something like that, i can't remember.

WHOMP

My guitar teacher was adamant that I learnt something like "Elephants And Dogs Grow Big Ears" But I never really think of it like that, just EADGBE, makes it easier when using alternate tunings, not having to compulsively make up new rhymes

If you can't learn eadgbe in the proper order without rhymes or a limerick maybe guitar isn't something for you?

For standard it was just the letters.

I guess just breaking the strings whilst tuning helped me

In my first 3/4 months of playing i went through about 5 packs of strings because i was always tuning the wrong ends .

Eventually it was just string recognition, and i listen to a lot of metalcore and stuff like that, so i was remembering CGCFAD, DADGBe and EADGBe.

After a while it just stuck i guess.
