Before playing any string instrument you have to tune your instrument according to your requirement or standard tuning. Here we see how we can tune our guitar according to standard tuning. Guitar have 6 strings from thin to thick it is numbered as 1,2,3,4,5,6. let us see how they sound in open strumming. if we strum these strings one by one they should sound as string should sound the note 6th - "E" 5th - "A" 4rth - "D" 3rd - "G" 2nd - "B" 1st - "E" You can tune your guitar in several ways. Fist method is with a electronic tuner, or wind tuner etc available in the market. if it is not available you can tune with your synthesizer tone. Play the note on your synthesizer and match the sound you require. Accordingly loose or tight the pegs of your guitar. Hou to tune guitar without any tuner. Other method is press at 5th fret of 6th string and its sound should match the 5th string open sound as both should sound the 'A' note. Then after setting this you press 5th fret on 5th string and it should match sound of 4th String. Means pressing 5th fret on 5th string will sound as 'D' and 4th string in open should sound as 'D' similarly press 5th fret on 4th string will sound 'G'and 3rd string in open should sound as 'G'. Then press 4th fret on 3rd string and it should sound as 'B'and next string 2nd string should sound as 'B'. they should match the sound. Again you should press 5th fret on 2nd string and it will sound as 'E' then you play 1st string in open they should match the sound means it should sound in open as 'E'. In this way you can tune the guitar without any tuner.
