Standard guitar tuning is E A D G B E. People use variations and alternate tunings but thats the standard. When I was first starting off on guitar someone told me to remember "Elephants And Donkeys Got Big Ears." That's EADGBE so just remember that. The first E is the first string on the guitar, the first one you see when your holding the guitar and you look down.
Thanks for the post. I had seen the EADGBE in some of the info online. When I tune my guitar, the "chromatic tuner" shows CFGdGd. I do not understand. It is in some degree of tune by my ear. Can you explain this to me? The lower strings seem odd. Also, the letter shown on the tuner may not be exactly the same every time. Thanks, WolfpackRon.
