Transcript:How Often Should a Guitar Be Tuned?
Tune Your Guitar Every Time You PlayHi, my name is Amatis and today we will talk about how often you should tune your guitar. Why? Because as a musician, you want to play the right notes and if the guitar is out of tune, it will sound bad for you and for your audience. Every time you pick up your guitar, you should tune it. After each song you play, you should check your tuning. I advise you to change the strings at least 2 days before any concert or recording session. Keep in mind that new strings tend to go out of tune more often than older ones. That means that you should tune them more carefully and more often.
