Does anyone know how to tune?Im been playing for 13months and i still dont know how to tune a guitar.

Get yourself a guitar tuner. Cost about 20 bucks, and when you pluck a string, it will tell you if it is flat or sharp. From there, you adjust the tuning pegs to make it in tune. Also, how can you play a guitar that hasnt been tuned in over a year? Yikes, time for new strings too.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Jeez! I have to re-tune every other day before I play, and often during playing - I can't begin to imagine how unfathomably out of tune your guitar must be

Not to mention how awful your strings must be...

I have a question. My music teacher told me a way to tune a guitar. he said put your finger on the 5th fret on the top E and play the one below open and they have to sound almost like 1 string. and keep goin' down. Does that work?

No he's lying. He's out to trick you! Yeah that's it! Run man run!

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Your low E must be in tune for that to work. You play an A on the low E (5th fret) and the open A string, and they should sound alike, and repeat, etc., but the B on the G string is on the fourth fret (only exception) just get AP tuner. And what you said about tuning your guitar low to high...-___-
