How to Tune a Guitar to Itself Using the Fifth-Fret Method

Play the fifth fret of the A (5th) string and then play the open D (4th) string.

Let both of these notes ring together. If the 4th string seems flat or sharp relative to the fretted 5th string, use the tuning key to adjust the 4th string's pitch accordingly.
