Guitar Strings


It's important to ensure your guitar is "in-tune" every time you play.

This way your playing will sound "right" and pleasing to the ear.

The tuning of your strings may change due to streching or slackening of new strings. This often occurs until the strings are "played-in" this can generally take a week or two after new strings have been fifted or when your guitar is very new. Changes in temperature and humidity and even the act of playing may cause string to go out of tune.

It is a good idea to first check your guitar's tuning every time you begin to play or practice and check the tuning frequently while you are playing.


Before you start tuning you should know

the names of the strings.

The name of the open strings on the guitar from low (thickest string) to high

(thinnest string) are :

E, A, D, G, B and E

A pitch pipe is a small device used to provide a pitch or reference note to tune yor one of the pipes (start with E) in your mouth and below this will provide a reference note upon which to tune the E string on your guitar. To tune the string to the corresponding reference note turn the machine head button away from you and the left, to tune the note "up" in pitch and towards you or the right, to tune the note "down". Repeat this process for all remaining notes and strings.

The easiest and most accurate way to tune your guitar is with the help of an electronic tuner. there are numerous types of guitar tuners available and most are relatively inexpansive and simple to operate. The screen allows you easly tune each string individually, by indicating wheter the notes are sharp (too high), flat (to low) or in tune. Tuning using other methods may be a litlle more difficult for a beginning guitar player and it may take some time to master. So we recommended you purchase an electronic tuner.
