Guitar Tuning

There are a lot of guitar scales to get your head around! The theory behind guitar scales is very easy to grasp. Before we start the training, there is something that we should do, tune the guitar..!!! Hell yeahh... This is important because I met many many people in the hang-out place, a.k.a. tongkrongan-tongkrongan, they do not tune the guitar first, so it sounds flat, even just make the headache burning our brain.

1. Identify the tone chord with 1 standard tool that has been ringing up to get the E (1st string E (E = 0))
2. Place the index finger on the fret 5, chord 2 then press, strum at the same time chord 1 and 2 (2nd string B (0 = E))
3. Place the index finger on fret 4, string 3, quotation at the same chord 2 and 3 (3rd string G (0 = B))
4. Place the index finger on fret 5, string 4, and the quotation at the same chord 3 and 4 (4th string D (0 = G))
5. Place the index finger on fret 5, string 5, and press, and at the same chord 4 and 5 strummed at the same time (5th string A (0 = D))
6. Place the index finger on fret 5, string 6, the same time string 5 and 6 strummed (6th string E (0 = A))

Here's the complete version...

= indicates the position on the open string
= indicates the chord pressed when it strummed


  1. Ah, my husband knows a little about guitars. He and his son play blues music. See his site: Anyway, let's ex-links with my blog instead of my anaps journal. Here is my link: See you there. I'll link you up.

  2. nice tut, but about the language...???

  3. @ ana : actually this site is not for guitar stuffs, i dedicated it to all of the peoples who need to know more about design and everything concern in photoshop or something... the tablature thing is just an additional, but if that could make opened a new world too... it's awesome...

  7. Dude, I'll sustain an high "E" for you today! Do you know how long I've played guitar? How does thirty years sound? My main axe is a 1975 black Stratocaster run through a Fender twin amp. I also keep another three tone sunburst on the side. Have a great day man.
