"5th Fret" Tuning Technique

Difficulty: Spectrum

This is the way that most people learned to tune when tuners were still expensive! Tuning using harmonics is better, more accurate, but this 5th fret technique should be mastered first.

I still recommend getting a tuner (or a phone app that will always be in your pocket!) but this method is effective when you're just tuning for yourself; don't need to play with anyone else; or just doing a quick tune for example after you have broken a string and are stretching it in!
