Guitar Tuning Tip

For more stable tuning, always tune up to pitch and avoid tuning down to pitch.

In other words, if the pitch of your guitar string is sharp, lower the string below pitch before tuning it back up to pitch.

Why? Because if you tune down to pitch there will be a little bit of play (loose contact between the tuning gear and the worm gear) in the tuning machines. As you play, the string tension will take up the slack in the tuning gears and your string will go flat and out of tune.

When you tune up to pitch the string is at full tension so the tuning is more stable (your guitar will stay in tune longer).

Do you have questions about tuning? We have answers!
