All I'll say is learn to tune not just by the machine but also learn to use your ear

Some guitars have a built-in tuner now. Otherwise, download a tuner app for your phone!

I have very good ears but I just can't beat the precision of a machine
it's very important to train your ears too, though - especially if you want to jam with people

edit: one thing I like to do is tune by ear and then check with a tuner how correct I was.
it can be a learning tool too, not just the cheat code :P

Tuning a guitar is an essential skill for every guitarist.

Get a Tuner: You can use a physical guitar tuner or a tuner app on your smartphone. Tuners detect the pitch of each string and help you adjust the tuning accurately.

Standard Tuning: The standard tuning for a guitar, from the thickest to the thinnest string, is E-A-D-G-B-E. The thickest string is the low E string, and the thinnest string is the high E string.

Tune the Low E String: Start by turning the tuning peg of the low E string (thickest string) clockwise or counterclockwise until the tuner displays the letter "E" and the needle or indicator is centered, indicating that the string is in tune.

Tune the A String: Press your finger on the fifth fret of the low E string, and pluck the open A string (the next thickest string). Adjust the tuning peg of the A string until the tuner displays the letter "A" and the needle is centered.

Tune the D String: Press your finger on the fifth fret of the A string, and pluck the open D string. Adjust the tuning peg of the D string until the tuner displays the letter "D" and the needle is centered.

Tune the G String: Press your finger on the fifth fret of the D string, and pluck the open G string. Adjust the tuning peg of the G string until the tuner displays the letter "G" and the needle is centered.

Tune the B String: Press your finger on the fourth fret of the G string, and pluck the open B string. Adjust the tuning peg of the B string until the tuner displays the letter "B" and the needle is centered.

Tune the High E String: Press your finger on the fifth fret of the B string, and pluck the open high E string (thinnest string). Adjust the tuning peg of the high E string until the tuner displays the letter "E" and the needle is centered.

Check the Tuning: After tuning all the strings, play each one individually to check their pitch and ensure they sound in tune. Make any necessary adjustments using the tuning pegs until each string is accurately tuned.

Fine-Tuning: If your guitar has a tremolo system or a floating bridge, you may need to perform additional fine-tuning using the bridge's fine-tuning knobs or by adjusting the spring tension, if necessary.

One way is to start with the low E string, and then match the other strings to it by ear. You can use the "fifth-fret method" or the "harmonic method" to get things in tune. Trust your ears, experiment, and don't sweat it if it takes a bit of time – you'll get the hang of it, and it's all about the fun and the vibe

Tuning a guitar is an essential skill for any guitarist. There are several methods to tune a guitar, but one of the most common and reliable methods is using a guitar tuner. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to tune your guitar using a tuner:

Materials you'll need:

A guitar tuner (either a physical tuner or a tuner app on your smartphone)
Your guitar
Steps:

Get your tuner ready:

If you're using a physical tuner, make sure it's turned on and ready to use.
If you're using a smartphone app, download a reliable guitar tuner app and open it.
Pluck the low E string (6th string):

Start by plucking the thickest string on your guitar, which is the low E string.
Check the tuner display:

The tuner will show you whether the string is in tune. Most tuners will display a needle or a series of lights. Your goal is to adjust the string's pitch until the display indicates that it's in tune.
Adjust the tuning peg:

If the tuner indicates that the string is flat (too low in pitch), turn the tuning peg for the low E string to the right to tighten the string and raise the pitch.
If the tuner indicates that the string is sharp (too high in pitch), turn the tuning peg to the left to loosen the string and lower the pitch.
Repeat for other strings:

Continue this process for the remaining five strings in the following order: A, D, G, B, and high E.
Check your tuning again:

After you've tuned all the strings once, go back and check each string again. Sometimes, adjusting one string can affect the tension on the other strings, so it's a good idea to double-check and make fine adjustments.
Strum and play a few chords:

After you've tuned your guitar, strum a few chords and play some notes to ensure everything sounds in tune and harmonious.
It's important to note that different tunings are used for various styles of music. Standard tuning (E A D G B e, from low to high) is the most common, but alternate tunings are also popular in certain genres. Make sure you're using the appropriate tuning for the music you want to play.

Remember that practice makes perfect, and tuning your guitar will become quicker and easier with experience. Using a reliable tuner will help you maintain proper pitch and keep your guitar sounding its best.

Get a Tuner: You can use a dedicated guitar tuner, a tuning app on your smartphone, or tune by ear using a reference pitch.

Standard Tuning: The standard tuning for a guitar is EADGBE, with the thickest string (low E) at the top and the thinnest string (high E) at the bottom.

Tune the Low E String: Start by plucking the low E string and adjusting the tuning peg until the tuner indicates that the string is in tune. Turn the peg to the right to tighten the string (raise the pitch) or to the left to loosen it (lower the pitch).

Tune the A String: Once the low E string is in tune, use the tuner to tune the A string by fretting the 5th fret of the low E string and plucking it. The A string should match this pitch.

Tune the D String: Similarly, fret the 5th fret of the A string and pluck it to tune the D string.

Tune the G String: Fret the 5th fret of the D string to tune the G string.

Tune the B String: Fret the 4th fret of the G string to tune the B string.

Tune the High E String: Fret the 5th fret of the B string to tune the high E string.

Check Your Tuning: Once all the strings are tuned, strum all the strings together and listen for any discrepancies. Use the tuner to make any necessary adjustments.

Fine-Tuning: After tuning all the strings, you may want to fine-tune them by comparing each string with the adjacent strings and adjusting as needed.

Check Intonation: Finally, check the intonation of your guitar by playing a few fretted notes on each string and comparing them with the open string. If the fretted notes are sharp or flat, you may need to adjust the intonation at the bridge.

Repeat if Necessary: If your guitar has a tremolo system (whammy bar), tuning can be affected by its use. Check the tuning after using the tremolo and adjust if necessary.

It's a good idea to tune your guitar regularly, especially before playing or recording, to ensure it sounds its best.
