Over the past few months, we’ve explored some great tips for aspiring guitar players. From guitar tips for beginners to improving your electric guitar tone, we hope the advice has helped you along the way. But without a properly-tuned guitar, all of these tips can go out the window. In fact, playing an out of tune instrument is one very common mistake that guitar players make when first learning to play.
So before you go any further, it’s time to learn how to tune your guitar. First step? Get a tuner! If you don’t have one already, you’ve got a few choices. You can either purchase a normal, portable electronic tuner (check out these top-rated tuners), or you can download an app for your Smartphone. Our staff favorites here at TakeLessons are gStrings for Android (free) and Gibson Learn (free) or TabToolkit ($9.99) or for iPhone/iPad.
Now let’s get started!
