Just with your own hearing
As I wrote above - being able to tune the guitar myself, with the help of my own hearing, is ideal. But keep in mind that it's not just about tuning the strings to each other, but also to hit the exact frequency of the tone, without which we can not afford to play with other instruments (especially those with fixed tuning). If the guitar is subdued or overcrowded, it does not have to do well with strings, and in addition, when exaggerated overcoat threatens to tear bridges and twist their throats.
Using another tool's tone
It's also an effective way, but the helper is not always well tuned.
Tuning the guitar according to one tuned string
To make the guitar tune us, just have a little hearing and at least one string properly tuned (the most practical is about e1 or e6.) To do this, use a metallic or blowing tuner or other tool.
There are many ways to proceed. The most common are:
1) Using the 5th Field Rule
It is in that logic:
Example: We have a tuned e1 (lower) string.
We will debug the string H - this strings pressed on the 5th array must sound the same as the empty e1 (as there is the same tone). We fine her until it sounds the same. For a better understanding, show the tones on the guitar tab .
We attach string G - here is the only exception - the tone h is on the 4th field, so we press the string on the 4th field and proceed the same as in the previous case.
Dash the strings D, A, E6 - press again on the fifth field and fine-tune to the previously tuned string.
2) Using flags
