Asked by Guy on 2000-01-28
how do i tune using harmonics, also how to tune the top three stings (d a e) using triads
Answer posted by Jordi on 2000-06-28
As far as I know, you can certainly tune your guitar using harmonics. The sound obtained from the 6th string's 5th fret-harmonic must be the same as the 5th string's 7th fret and so on except the 2nd and the 1st strings. In order to tune up the 2nd string you'll have to obtain a harmonic from the 4th fret of the 3rd string and compare its sound with the harmonic obtained from the 5th fret of the second string. The same thing is applicable to the 1st string. I hope I am right.

Almost right Jordi :). You can't tune the '5th' (actually referred to as '2' in the lessons) and the '6th' string like that...harmonics don't work right on the fourth fret. What you CAN do is tune an open B string ('5th') to the harmonic from the 7th fret on the Low E. Then you can tune the B and High E strings just like the others, or tune the High E to the harmonic from the 5th fret of the Low E.
