I finally gave my guitar a proper tuning I think. I pluged the guitar into the tuner, set it to 440, turned the tone all the way down and the volume all the way up. I plucked each string between the second single pickup and the humbucker. I got the following readings when the meter's green LED was the only one to light up.
1. first string got a small b type notation just to the right of the E
2. second string got a small b type notation just to the right of the B
3. G with no other notation on the meter
4. D with no other notation on the meter
5 A with no other notation on the meter
6. E with no other notation on the meter
is this right for the standard tune using the Korg? thanks

I dont know. I just started guitar and the tuner only read green so i figured it was in perfect tune

your 1st 2 strings are flat. lose the notations next to them, which means tighten the strings.

^^exactamundo .. sometimes I dont notice those when I tune with my korg and then play and go wtf!!?! Tighten 'em up until its just an E and just a B
#6
Ok. when i barely touch the mechanisms for those two strings the meter's guage jumps to sharp or the left side and the the left red led and green center one light up. I must be very close to getting it tuned right then? Is what im doing with the tone and volume controls right?

make sure it just reads "E" and "B", not "Eb" or "Bb". and i just leave my volume and tones on 10 when i tune. i dont think its crucial to tuning.

It jumping all the way to sharp is not bad, it must go from a very sharp Eb to an E

Same for the B, it must go from a very sharp Bb to an B.

Good luck!

how much do you think i need to turn the mechanisms? I managed to get the rest of the strings perfect and could only get the high E and B close. tuning can be a *****

Ah well, at least your amp's alright. I've got the same.. Meh, I don't like it, I know you haven't really started yet but is it just me or is the classic stack setting really godamn muddy?

I also hate how it lacks any form of EQ..

tune your e and b higher (make them go sharper, towards the # sign).

Eventually, they'll just say e and b, after the line goes from the right side of the tuner back to the left.
Then keep turning it sharper until the green light shines and it just says e b g d a e with no other notations

Do you know what accidentals are? Actually do you know what semitones are? If you don't I think you need to read up on the fundementals of music and learn some theory as you play the guitar. And just for reference an Eb is just a semitone flat of E, and the same goes for Bb and B.

Im jusy beginning my guitar education. so an E is really close in tune to an Eb and same for a B. thanks

Yes but they aren't the same note. You'll want to keep tightening your Eb string and magically it will become a E note. Like said pick up a book that has scales, chords and a book about theory and study them as you progress through your guitar life. You'll gain a lot more respect for the instrument and be a great guitarist as well.
