"How To: Tune a Guitar" to understand how to tune the guitar with your ears

One of the difficulties facing people who just started playing the guitar is to match the six strings to the sound that is decidedtuningis. If you use a special machine "tuner" you can relatively easily tune, but what you want to be able to tune with the sound heard with your ear if you can. A way to become such a hint is "How To: Tune a GuitarIt is explained in.

How To: Tune a Guitar

Open the site and scroll the screen and a guitar appears. When you play the string, the sound of the guitar distorted sound comes out, but you can see that the tuning of each string is slightly misaligned and feeling bad.

When scrolling further, it got the screen to actually tune. When you drag up and down six "Pegs" on the guitar head on the right side of the screen up and down with the mouse, the pitch of the sound rises and falls, so adjust the tuning meter at the bottom left of the screen to enter the green area. In this screen, the sound of the 4th string D (レ) is matched.

When the meter's needle entered the green area safely, the peg part of the head became green. With this, I could tune this string well.

By tuning all 6 strings in the same procedure, you can proceed to the next screen.

When clicking "Play a lick.", A simple scale was played with the guitar in the state where tuning was possible.

Here, explanation of the mechanism of electric guitar. In principle, metal strings are used for electric guitars, and the vibration of strings is converted into electric signals by electromagnetic coils called "pickups". By putting that signal in the tuner or the amplifier, it becomes possible to tune it and to make a big sound from the amplifier.

I was able to tune the sound with the tuner, so let's try tuning with just the ear this time. There are a few tricks when tuning with ears.

In general, we often tune using "5 frets and open strings" and "5 frets and 7 frets harmonics sounds", but at this site you can feel the sound of the adjacent strings and adjust the sound I am teaching. For example, the 5th and 4th strings of the guitar are the sound of "La" and "Le", which is a "complete 4 degree" relationship. Completely 4 degrees is set as "Complete 5 degrees" and "Octave" side by side with no turbidity in chords, so change the height of the sound of the other string with reference to either string, the most resonant It is an explanation that you can tune if you decide on a good place. The only exception is the case of 3 strings "S" and 2 strings "Si", this combination is "long 3 degrees" and is known for having a bright sounding.

But here are a few things to keep in mind. The guitar is an instrument tuned by the equal temperament, but in the mean temperamentChords other than octaves always become turbid (= undulation). Even though I think that "the 5th string and the 4th string fit perfectly!" Because it is the case of the genuine rule, not the average rule, because the sound of the "complete 4th" touched here is beautifully done When you try it, it is important to be aware that you may feel "that?

"Undulation" also occurs by sounding the two sounds with slight misalignment. On the site, you can listen to the sound of one sound shifted by 5 hertz, you can experience the obvious swell.

In order to be able to do tuning well, it is important to have a large number of times to say anything. It is best to pick up a real guitar and adjust the sound, but if you adjust the sound on the site, you will be able to practice again by going crazy again and matching.
