Suppose that you have already overcome meal choice of the guitar and became the owner of an expensive heart tool. What do I do next? Customize. Avoid playing untuned or poorly tuned guitar. It may prevent you acquire the skills and experience (both hearing and playing), to which you wanted to buy a guitar. Must accustom himself to this right from the start.
And before every game try to check the system and adjust if something “slipped.” Now just to set up a guitar. It’s about six-string guitar. Customize your guitar – means to make each string guitar sound a certain way. It is meant to sound frequency. For those who do not have perfect pitch to do it without some other reference sources, audio or extras will be difficult.
As the sound source, you can use other known tuned instrument, fork, etc. Ideally, you can configure each string of seeking unison with the standard sound. In practice, in most cases do not. Most often achieve the correct sound the first (lowest and thin) string, and then on her “build” the rest of the string. This is the best option. He’s not here we will consider the correct order six-string guitar: 1st string – Mi (E), 2nd string – C (B) 3rd string – Sol (G) 4th string – Re (D) 5th string – La (A) 6th string – Mi (E) As seen, the sound of the first string must match the note Mi. Extract from the reference (adjusted) of the instrument a note to MI, and sought to open first string sounded in unison. When using fork (preferred), be aware that it complies with the sound of the first octave note, La – frequency of 440 Hz. So, hold the first string at the 5th fret and playing in unison achieve tuning fork. Now tune the other strings. The second string, sandwiched on the 5th fret to sound in unison with the first. The third string at the 4th fret in unison with the second. The fourth string at the 5th fret in unison with the third. The fifth string at the 5th fret in unison with the fourth. And the sixth string at the 5th fret in unison with the fifth. Please note that you can not get a bit with the first string – it’s not so bad. But the rest of the strings is important to achieve a clear match. If you make a mistake with some string (eg, third), then on the error “napolzet” on the fourth, fifth and sixth strings. In this case, the result may frustrate you. Therefore, we recommend after setting up the guitar to verify. The first and sixth string should be played in unison by two octaves. Electronic tuning. Customize your guitar, you can use an electronic tuner. Of course, have to fork out a bit. But the tuners are accurate and easy to use. Many tuners are show too low or too high note played. I highly recommend to use the tuner in tuning guitars. Program tuner can pick up free here. And in the end. Periodically recheck the setting on the Guitar tuning fork (the tuner or other audio source reference). This would avoid the neck (too much string tension). Excessive tension of strings harm the instrument. In addition, if the strings are long drag state, they are deformed. This changes the physics of string theory. Consequently, the sound suffers, even when properly build a guitar. Good luck and creative successes.
