Tips of playing a guitar

Tune the guitar.  It’s no fun to play a guitar that’s not in tune and can lead to some bad habits when you’re first starting out. Tuning regularly will also familiarize you with which string and fret combinations correspond with which notes.

  • First learn the name of each string. From the lowest to highest pitch (thickest to thinnest strings) the strings are named E, A, D, G, B, and E (after the note played when the string is plucked with no fingers touching it). Use a mnemonic to remember this order, such as Eddie Ate Dynamite Good Bye Eddie.
  • Electric tuners are easy to use and very accurate. Hold it to the guitar and pluck the high E. The tuner will tell you if the guitar is “sharp” (too high) or “flat” (too low). Pick each note and tighten the string to make it go higher, or give it some slack to lower it. Make sure the room is quiet when using a tuner because the microphone on the tuner can pick up other sounds.
  • If you cannot afford a tuner, you can also tune your guitar without one by matching each note to the corresponding note on the piano.
