to tune to 2 steps down do I hold the 4th fret down on each string and tune to that string on a tuner?
#82
yeah, that's right.

Just do that and tune EADGBe

Hey guys, stupid beginner questions here. Hope you can help me...

Okay, its my first guitar with a floating trem and I just wanted to make cautionary steps b4 I do something stupid...

My guitar came in standard tuning from the factory and I would like to tune it back again(in standard tuning) after some time to keep it in-tune.... So is it safe to go ahead and tune the guitar without worrying about the bridge goin bonkers or having to adjust anything?

Do I have to unlock something on the nut or something from the bridge b4 i tune the guitar ?

How bout if I wanted to do some low-tunings? Is it safe to go ahead and do them on a floating-trem?

Anyone who is sure and knows this kind of stuff please help.

if its the same note it vibrates because of the bridge. like if i played the A on the E the A string would vibrate. you can mute the strings if it annoys you

Floyd rose? if it has a locking nut, you'll want to loosen it a bit before tuning, as it basically clamps the strings.

Probably cause your guitar isn't quite tuned perfectly right, or the intonation may be off.

If tuned perfectly it shouldn't do that at all, except when Indie says.

Hi. I've had some difficulty tuning a floating trem (with locking nut) for the 1st time. Whenever I'd tune one string, then go back to another that I have already tuned in, it seems to go back out of tune. What is the reason for this and how do I tune it the proper way??

Personally, I hate those, but that's just me.

Try tuning like this:


e---------0-
B-------0-5-
G-------4--
D-----0----
A--0--5----
E--5-------


try tuning like that, it's hard to get your ear round, but once you do it'll be your best friend.

By doing that you have to assume your low E string is in tune to begin with. But it is the quickest way to tune your guitar.

Hey guys... I know this is a really stupid question, but whatever.

So I have a tuner, and my guitar is tuned to A440, what on the tuner do I tune the guitar to for it to be a 1/2 step down? I mean, is it A435, or what. I'm confused. So, if any of you guys can answer me, that'd be sick. Thanks.

You shouldn't have to change that to tune down a half step. It'd be ~415 though.

By "~415" I mean, it'd actually be 415.30. If you can tell the difference, I'll give you a cookie.

#105
Drop B: B F# B E G# C#

1. Play the 2nd fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the A string to match the 2nd fret Low E string.
2. Play the 5th fret A string and the D string open. Retune the D string to match the 5th fret A string.
3. Play the 5th fret D string and the G string open. Retune the G string to match the 5th fret D string.
4. Play the 4th fret G string and the B string open. Retune the B string to match the 4th fret G string.

6. Play the 12th fret Low E string and the D string open. Retune the 12th fret Low E to match the D string open.

I can't be assed looking into Sevendust's tuning right now, but if it's what you say, that's how to do it.

call me really dumb, but i'm having trouble tuning with my electronic tuner.
It's a Korg-UA30.
It's set to the right setting (guitar, not bass).
I tried plugging my jack straight from my guitar into it-- I get a reading on like three strings, generally-- sometimes they're two notes off, though. It was saying my 4th String was a 7B
(when it was still higher than my low Estring to my ears). It said my 6th String was a 5A-- so I tightened it, still a 5A, tightened it, it snapped.

I've now since restrung it, and still am getting no response on some strings- or flat out bizarre ones. The mic method isn't much better.

Any help?
#107
The tuner doesn't actually know which string you're playing, just what frequency it is, and will show the nearest string to that, if that makes sense.

And if it was saying your 6th string was 5A, you already had it too tight.

If you get one string tuned, you can use this method to tune:

1. Play the 5th fret Low E string and the A string open. Retune the A string to match the 5th fret Low E string.
2. Play the 5th fret A string and the D string open. Retune the D string to match the 5th fret A string.
3. Play the 5th fret D string and the G string open. Retune the G string to match the 5th fret D string.
4. Play the 4th fret G string and the B string open. Retune the B string to match the 4th fret G string.
5. Play the 5th fret B string and the High E string open. Retune the High E string to match the 5th fret B string.

Takes a little practice, but I find it quicker, and much less hassle.

Thanks. I'll try that. If you have any tips to get my tuner working (without it suggesting for me to tighten strings to the point of them snapping!) they'd be appreciated as well!

Oh, and one more quick question-- is there a particular place I should be picking/plucking when I'm trying to tune? Or just where I normally would?

Thanks again
#109
Just where you normally would.

Those steps should work no matter what tuning your guitar is in to start with, as long as the first string is tuned to E.

Tuning this way takes a bit to get used to, until your ear gets used to listening for the phasing. When the string is slightly out of tune, you'll hear a "wobbling" sound when you play the two notes together. When the wobbling is at it's slowest, you're in tune.

I was playing around with the guitar pro file of arcade fire - power out and noticed one of the guitar's using an unusual (to me) tuning:

BBGDAD

cheers, thanks a lot.

It'd be called "odd" lol.

Anyway, I can't find a GP tab of it on UG, you got a link to it?

I think you've written that high to low, which is why I want to check before ****ing up your guitar

But if it is then it'd be this:

1. Play the 12th fret Low E string and the D string open. Retune the 12th fret Low E to match the D string open
2. Replace the high e string with a B string and tune it to match the other B string.

Can I take a 6 string guitar and tune it down to say an A-D-G-C on the lower end (say like Korn), and still have it retain its tuning, or do I need a 7 string.
