Okay guys I need serious help, this is becoming a pain in the ****ing ass. I can't tune the Low E to save my ****ing life, even the tuner on my Line 6 can't get it right, most of the time it "tunes" it it's the same as the A string, I need help .

Can you get the A string tuned? If so, then just fret the 7th fret of the A string and match the E string up to that note.

A string is nicely tuned, so you're saying I tune the Low E to whatever I hear at the 7th fret of the A by ear? If so, I will try tomorrow, thanks a lot.

Yep.

Morphogenesis, my love for you is pure :'D!


I assume this means you got it in tune.

Seems like you got the answer but it's good to learn to use your ears. It's pretty necessary to at least be able to hear if you are not in tune and know how to get it in tune.

Do you know the basic way to tune the guitar?

5th fret of low E string = open A string
5th fret of A string = open D string
5th fret of D string = open G string
4th fret of G string = open B string
5th fret of B string = open high E string

It's also good to learn at least some note names on your fretboard.

A method that works well, especially if your tuner is not the greatest, is to use the 12th fret harmonic.
