Instead of tuning the fifth fret of the E string to the open A string, tune the seventh fret of the E string to the open A string. Down one step.

It is really not that hard to do. Learn the notes on the fretboard.

tune the 7th fret (normally a B) of your low E string to match your A string...that is, play the 7th fret, then tune the string down till the pitch matches the A string.
#8
tune ur E string down until the 7th fret of the E string matches the open A string (the 5th fret matches the open in standard tuning). Good luck.
#9
play 7th fret on E till it sounds like open A, very simple

seriously, man, there was no need for that. he's new and just didnt know. by all means, go ahead and direct him to the tuning thread, but yelling "*reported*!" at everything is just stupid and uncalled for.

sorry to say it, but you are one of the things wrong with UG at the moment...

so what if theres threads on this already. I hate people who feel the need to tell on other guys. he just wants help. don't be such pricks... Is it really that painful to see more than one thread on the same topic. don't be such douchebags... (walkinbazooka)

But yeah, just play the low E on the 7th fret and tune down until it sounds exactly like the A string, right above it.

haha, god bless ratm. hope they tour in seattle.

That annoys me too
anyway tune it so the 7th fret of your low E string matches in tone with your A string.

Or you could do what i do and tune your open E (6th/biggest string) to the same pitch as your open D (4th/3rd biggest)

true, but not a lot of people have that good sense of pitch. it's easier if it's the same note in the same octave. so they should sound exactly the same, not just same pitch.
