Those who are new to playing the guitar are often so eager to get started that they neglect learning how to tune properly. However, it is important to take the time to learn how to tune your guitar by ear for several reasons. One of these reasons is that there are situations where tuners are not available. Ear tuning is simple and often faster as well. Sometimes, this type of tuning is necessary to make quick adjustments. It requires very little time and effort to learn.
