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

Play the fifth fret of the D (4th) string and then play the open G (3rd) string.

Let both notes ring together again. If the 3rd string seems flat or sharp relative to the fretted 4th string, use the tuning key of the 3rd string to adjust the pitch accordingly.
