So the only string i can tune a guitar is the E string. All the other strings break. Like with the A string it breaks at A flat on my tuner. I have no clue what im doing wrong.
Can A bad Chord be a problem.?

Like, theres more then one E. And your low E is supposed to be a specific E, but your tuning to the one above that.

If you are tuning an octave too high, and can't tell that something is wrong... well... ...I think you'd know if that were the problem. If you were to tune an octave too high, it would mean that each open string would sound the same as the twelfth fret sounds when tuned normally.

As someone else said, you're probably winding too much string around the peg. YOu only really need to go around 2-3 times with most tuners. What you also might do is loosen the machines when you next take the strings off.
