Essentials: The First thing you may need is a tuner. Practice tuning your guitar as often as possible as this is excellent for ear training and the more you do it, the less you will need a tuner , in time you may develop what is known as ” perfect pitch”. This is where your ears have been trained to hear in your head the notes you need to tune your instrument without a tuner, how cool would that be and how much can you show that little talent off! Of course that takes many years of practice and it will pay off.
