    there are variety of methods..
    1) download tuning software..this requires u to listen to a note eg: E and then u can tune the rest of the strings after tuning the lowest string to e.
    2) if you have an effects pedal, it MITE have a tuning function..i know mine does..not all will.
    3)the hardest method,,but the best to remember the E humming it..but this obviously requires u to remember the E note.
    Good Luck.

    hey the basics of tuning the guitar are:
    1. one of the string needs to be in tune (i.e. some standard freq) ... or if it is not it doesn't matter as long as u are not playing along with someone ...
    2. now assuming u fix the frequency of one string ... u tune the others using it ...
    3. lets say u fixed the thinnset string - called "e" string beacuse it denoted e note ...
    4. now u tune the second string ... called "b" string by adjusting the tension in the wire ... and bring the 5th fret note equal to the opne 1st string ...
    5. 3rd string 4th fret = 2nd open string
    6. 4th string 5th fret = 3rd string open
    7. 5th string 5th fret = 4th open
    8. 6th string 5th fret = 5th open string

    u may haveto repeat the procedure agin since some strings might not be tuned yet ...

    thats all to tuning the guitar ...
