As i was tuning up i randomly began to ponder if most people tuned starting at the top or bottom.
So: When you tune your guitar do you start on the top or bottom string?

I start at the low E, because if you do the 5th fret is the next string thing, you have to make sure low E is in tune for the rest of it to be in tune.
#7
The high E usually detunes easier so I start with the low E

The bottom. Tuning is a hassle most of the time so I've removed the first two strings now.
#13
Depends, if I'm tuning with a tuner I always start with the high E.

If I'm tuning without a tuner, I always start with the low E.

I start on the A string and the low e last. On my acoustic I just play a chord (usually a G Major) and tune whichever is out of tune.

Most people refer to it as the bottom string, but i dont because if your holding it in your hands the low E is on TOP of everything else.

I think they mean low as in low in pitch.

I said top, I meant Low E.

I'm too cool for tunning. Instead I bought a Gibson Robot guitar that tunes itself for me. Because paying thousands of dollars is so much easier then buying a 20$ box.
