Tips On Tuning By Ear A common method of tuning is known as the 5th fret tuning method.This is done by matching the sounds of the notes on the 5th fret, to each string below.If your starting from scratch, you'll need a way to get your large E string in proper tune. I often do this by tuning the large E to a song that starts with the open E string. As shown in the example below, the song Enter Sandman by Metallica. Starts with open E Actual Lick e :------------------------------------------------------ B :------------------------------------------------------ G :------------------------------------------------------ D :-------------------------------5---------------------- A :-----------------------------7-------7---------------- E :---0--------------------0--------6-5------------------ Just keep waiting for the open E to repeat itself, until you have tuned to proper pitch. This is just one songs of many that start with open E. I have listed some other songs that also start with open E below. The next step is to tune the open A string to the Note on the 5th fret (large E string) which is the note A. Match open A to the 5th fret large E string (A note) e :------------------------------------------------------ B :------------------------------------------------------ G :------------------------------------------------------ D :------------------------------------------------------ A :--0--------------------------------------------------- E :-------------------------------------------5---------- Next Step Match open D string to the 5th fret A string (D note) e :------------------------------------------------------ B :------------------------------------------------------ G :------------------------------------------------------ D :--0--------------------------------------------------- A :----------------------------------------------5------- E :------------------------------------------------------ Next Step Match open G string to the 5th fret D string (G note) e :------------------------------------------------------ B :------------------------------------------------------ G :--0--------------------------------------------------- D :---------------------------------------------5-------- A :------------------------------------------------------ E :------------------------------------------------------ Next Step Match the B string to the 4th fret G string (B note) e :------------------------------------------------------ B :--0--------------------------------------------------- G :-------------------------------------------4---------- D :------------------------------------------------------ A :------------------------------------------------------ E :------------------------------------------------------ Last Step Match the small E string to the 5th fret B string (E note) e :--0--------------------------------------------------- B :------------------------------------------5----------- G :------------------------------------------------------ D :------------------------------------------------------ A :------------------------------------------------------ E :------------------------------------------------------ Other Methods Of Tuning... There are many other methods of tuning. Some players who tune by ear, tune by using octaves, others use natural harmonics. The old fashioned methods of pitch pipes, tuning forks and tuning to a piano, are pretty much a part of the past. Nowdays musicians rely on electronic tuners for the best results. Advantages Of Tuning By Ear... It's best if you are recording a song, or playing a live gig to tune your guitar using an electronic tuner. However tuning by ear does have its advantages. Eventually your ear will become that much more familiar with the sound of each open string. The end results will be , that when trying to learn songs from CDs, that your ear will become developed and recognize the sounds of E, A, D, G, B, and high E. This will make it easier for you to have a place to start from when attempting to transcribe a song. Other Songs That Start With Open E include: Dirty Deeds by AC/DC Paranoid by Black Sabbath Pride n Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughan Peace Sells by Megadeth
