Hello,

Get your E string nice and tight, then tune everything else relative to it.

OK,Here we go

We start at the 6th string, this is the fattest string on your guitar, and when played open its an E note. All you do is turn the tuning peg until the note on the guitar sounds like the E note that you've just played. Once you have that first note you proceed in an orderly manner tuning one string after another. Press down on the 5th fret of the 6th string...then play the 5th string open. The 6th string with the 5th fret pressed down is the same note as the 5th string played open. Turn the tuning peg until the 5th string sounds like the 6th string with the 5th fret depressed.

Now the pattern continues and you press down the 5th fret on the 5th string...then play the 4th string open. Once again, tune until these two notes sound the same. Then move onto the next string...Press down on the 5th fret of the 4th string and tune the 3rd string to this note. Once you get to the third string there is a different pattern...you press down on the 4th fret of the 3rd string and then tune the 2nd string to this note. Finally you press down the 5th fret of the 2nd string and tune the open 1st string to this note.

There you have it, a tuned guitar.

Just out of interest, please answer me two questions....
How old are you ?
How long have you been playing the guitar ?

More to the point he claims to be the owner of an RS and he doesn't seem to know which fucking end to hold.

I still say nobody is this stupid, so he must be a WUM

I am surprised he hasn't asked what the dots are for on the fretboard.

I want to know why you have an RS guitar yet have no knowledge of tuning a guitar. Pearls to swine!

Yeah mate, send me your guitar, my one's shit. With my ability and your guitar, nothing can go wrong!

Well look at it this way, I wouldn't let your ability within five blocks of my guitar.

(I'm just taking the piss by the way, I'm sure you're great, or will be one day).

The winner of a signed Burns RS in Guitarist magazine admitted to not playing a note.

The winner of the POTU flying V at the convention ditto.

I have no problem with people with more money than talent buying high end stuff (and have a non-BM lookalike very much in mind at this point), but couldn't they do what the rest of us did (do) with no talent, ie fuck off and LEARN?

I found that if you put a battery in under the neck plate, the dots light up. It's brilliant

Just keep tightening the strings. Tighter. Tighter. Yeah. That's it.
