Relative Tuning instructions (tuning the guitar 'by ear')

• Pluck the string before you turn the tuning peg, then listen as you turn to match the
pitch of the fretted note that you just played (it is all about hearing the pitch of the note).

• Listen, compare, listen again, compare again. This takes much practice and repetition, so have patience and listen closely.

• Tune the open string until the pitch difference 'wobbles' are completely gone.
The open string will then have the same pitch as the fretted one.
