Tuning the Guitar explains through practical instruction how to approach the tuning of the guitar so that you can always get the result you want, by ear, in an expert manner.

Knowing the secrets hidden in the principles of musical intervals and vibrating guitar strings can make the difference between a really good tuning, and one that's unsatisfactory.

The book reveals how temperament, stopping sharp, and false beating all interact together on the guitar, and how to use that knowledge to achieve optimal tuning.

Drawing on years of experience in teaching adults the complexities of piano tuning, the author turns here to the unique principles that apply to all 6-stringed guitars.
