i personally use this method myself

1. make sure your 6th string is in tune

2. play the harmonic located on the 5th fret of the 6th string while playing the 7th fret harmonic on the 5th string - they should be the same (listen to the "waves")

3. play the 5th fret harmonic on the 5th string and the 7th fret harmonic on the 4th string - they should be the same

4. repeat for the 4th and 3rd strings

5. the 2nd string is a bit tricky because the harmonic on the 5th fret previous string will be different then the 7th on this one...to solve this, tune the 1st string by playing any harmonic on the 6th string and playing the same on the 1st string - they should be the same, only two octaves apart

6. now, repeat step 2 for the 2nd and 1st string

and there you go...post it in the only tuning thread next time

Its not absolutely essential to make sure that the 6th is in tune, as long as you have a basic relevance in tune between the strings then thats fine.

also 6 and 1st strings are 2 octaves apart, not 1 octave

Not true at all if you're playing in a band setting.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Okay then, if all your mates are tuned to your low E then it doesnt matter

7th fret farmonic on E string = open B string
5th fret harmonic on E string = open e string.

I prefer doin it that way.

Also you have to change how you sing, and if you have another guitarists/ bassists then your screwed.
