use a tuner..if you dont have one use this site

http://www.howtotuneaguitar.org/

AND if you have a floyd trem alternate tune the strings for example, tune the 6th string then the 1st string, then the 5th string then the 2nd string then the 4th string then the 3rd string
Crank your rig on 12, let it feedback wide-open for a good two minutes, freak your neighbors out and ENJOY THE POWER OF THE GUITAR! 'Oh, what a feeling,' and it ain't no damned Toyota!" ----Dimebag Darrell

I do believe Euro is joking.

This thread's TS is an epic failure to mankind.

No joke. I play ultra intricate brutal post modern death metal which requires the most precision and precise tuning and intonation. And I always tune that way. Always perfect.

If he doesn't know how to tune it, I doubt he'd really if it were double locking or not, or even what a locking nut is

Yup. That is how you do it.


If you are a complete noob how would that even work thatd be retarded

Anyway yes it is a stupid question but its one that still needs to be answered if TS is serious.

No need to spam guys.

To elaborate more on jenny's post, when tuning once you're very close to the pitch, tune until the oscillating sound is gone. It needs to sound like you're doubling the string without any waves. If you don't quite understand post another post and we'll try to help you more thoroughly.
