Tuning a guitar properly is just about the most important thing a guitar player has to do. No matter how good you are at playing guitar, if it’s out of tune then whatever you play will sound terrible (unless you are into punk rock then it will probably sound perfect!) haha.
A guitar is tuned by turning the tuning pegs at the top of the guitar (the headstock). Turning the peg in one direction will tighten the string and so raise the pitch. Turning the peg the opposite way will loosen the string and so lower the pitch. This enables you to tune the strings in harmony together.
