Well for Xmas I got a nice digital tuner for the guitar, but...is there any time frame in which I should tune the guitar? Everytime I pick it up? Once a week?

Mine usally takes about 40-50mins. Just leave it while you do somthing else. What you choose to do in 40 minutes is completley up to you, but I usally carve small aniamls made from pieces of coal.


Whos takes 50minutes? seriously

Every time it goes out of tune... But you should get used to tuning it by ear, so much better for you and often more precise. Just use the digital tuner to tune the low e and then tune the rest by ear. Good practice.

No, it that case you just tune it when it goes out of tune, too.


Btw, you should get a better amp to keep up with that SG.

if you have a floyd rose once and then never again apparently...


...until you change string gauge and then you'll have to do it 37 times.

No no no! Check the tuning by ear every time you pick it up. It should be the first thing you do every time. And until you get good at checking it by ear you should keep the tuner on to double check.

If it stays in tune (which it should do if it's half decent), why?

tuning helps u develop ur ear. just takes a minute. and fine adjustments are almost always needed.

Everytime it's out of tune, you'll get the hang of that pretty quickly. I got really quick at tuning because every guitar in my house gets left in drop D or C by my brother or cousin. I ask them not to do it when I've just restrung my Yairi, it seems to hold it's tune better if it's left in E for a week or so on new strings.

In the case of my brother's old Japanese Stratocaster, you retune everytime someone breaths on the tremelo bar, or bumps the headstock, or just plays a whole song without stopping to retune. You also replace strings pretty often because the worn out bridge eats them.
