How To Tune A Guitar By Ear

Have you ever wondered how to tune a guitar by ear? Ever had your digital guitar tuner die on you just when you needed it the most?

Well, here’s a cool trick that I use to tune my guitar by ear.

Wherever possible, you should try to get a reference note. If you can hit a note on a piano, or from another guitar, or whatever, that’s great. Just try to make sure the note you work off of is in tune. You can even get a tuning fork and use this method with that.

If there’s nothing around, that’s cool, don’t worry about it. At least your guitar can be in tune with itself.

I use this method when I don’t have a guitar tuner handy, or when I’ve just recently tuned and there’s one string that’s going on the fritz. I can then adjust that string back into tune with the others really quick using the harmonics you’ll see in the video.
