Guitar Tuning Chart: Standard, Drop D, DADGAD, Open G,...

    🎸 There are about as many good ways to tune a guitar than there are ways to make a tasty banana split. 🍌🍨

    On this page you'll find a chart with standard tuning as well as a bunch of common alternate guitar tuning options. For each tuning, you'll get the note and octave for each string. If you need the frequency in hertz for each note, you can refer to this note frequency chart. These tunings are for 6-string guitars. If I forgot your favorite tuning or if you'd like me to add tunings for other stringed instruments, get in touch to let me know.
