To fine-tune the tuner is better to use, hardware or software - it does not matter. Hardware tuner - it's a small device that determines the frequency of vibration and sound indicates a note that it corresponds to, and rejection of sound from music. Program tuner - essentially the same, only the sound of a computer program is analyzed. To use the software necessary to connect a guitar tuner to your computer, and if you have an acoustic guitar - use a microphone. There are other programs that do not analyze the sound (and thus connect the guitar to the computer is not necessary), but simply reproduce the sound of the desired frequency for each string. Program to configure the guitar will be discussed in another article.
Tuning your guitar starts with setting the first (thinnest string).
The first string, sandwiched on the fifth fret (A note) must be sound with the oscillation frequency 440 Hz. To obtain a sample of this sound, you can use a tuning fork or other instrument (the main thing that it has been configured), and set the hearing of the string.
If the hand did not have none of the above, we can resort to the MGTS. Beep in the handset has a frequency of oscillation 400-425 Hz, and the first string on the fourth fret sandwiched - 415 Hz, then the first string on the fourth fret to sound just like the telephone dial tone. Of course, this is only an adjustment.
Over time, you may remember how to sound the note A, and be able to customize your guitar sound without the use of the sample.
So, compare the sound of music and sound A string clutched at the fifth fret. When the string is properly configured, the sound should seem to merge (which is the unison). If the sounds are clearly different from each other, try to tighten the first string on the fourth or the sixth fret. If you are clamped by the string on the fourth fret and the sounds become more similar, it means that the string is set up above, and we have to weaken the string. If the same result when squeezed in the sixth fret of the string - the string to pull. Get the maximum similarity of sounds.
The second string is adjusted relative to the first: clamped on the fifth fret it should sound in unison with the open first string.
The third string is configured a little differently. Sandwiched on the fourth fret it should sound like the second discovery.
Further, all strings are tuned to the fifth fret. That is the fourth string, sandwiched on the fifth fret - in unison with an open third, etc.
Now you need to check how the guitar is set up, because when you set up guitar can accumulate error when the strings sounded like a similar, but not in unison. The sixth and the first open string should sound in unison with the fourth, sandwiched on the second fret and the third to the ninth. Fifth, sandwiched on the second fret - in unison with the open second and fourth to the ninth. Fifth on the tenth fret - as the third open.
When fine-tuning, if extract audio from the second string, clamped at the fifth fret, then open first string, too, will vary - there will be repercussions. Thus, you can check the tuning of guitar strings, and if necessary adjust the guitar.
Hold every chord and strike the strings - the guitar properly tuned sounds good, evenly and together.
Setting dvenadtsatistrunnoy guitar.
Setting dvenadtsatistrunnoy guitar is not very different from the usual six-string configuration. The main strings are tuned to a six-string guitar. The first and second extra strings are tuned in unison with the main strings and the rest - an octave higher. It should be noted that the guitar is very capricious in setting up and growing old if the strings may adjust the guitar will not succeed.
The standard system dvenadtsatistrunnoy Guitar
The first string and second string - Mi (E) of the first octave.
The third and fourth strings - C (H) small octave.
The fifth string - Sol (G) small octave.
Sixth string - Sol (G) of the first octave.
The seventh string - Re (D) small octave.
Eighth string - Re (D) of the first octave.
Ninth chord - La (A) high octave.
Tenth string - La (A) small octave.
Eleventh string - Mi (E) big octave.
Twelfth string - Mi (E) small octave.
As with the six-string guitar, the first string tuned to a note of the first octave of La (440 Hz). How to set up the first string described in the "six-string guitar tuning."
Be extremely careful when configuring the sixth (third more) strings. It is fairly thin, and the tension in her most, so there is great risk to break the string.
At dvenadtsatistrunnyh guitars are also used alternative construction. Often guitar tuned lower to extend tool life, since the total string tension is almost two times higher than that of a normal guitar.
