G3 sounds like this, B2 sounds like this, E1sounds like this. OK. But let's find these notes on a piano. Here's E6, here's where it should be. Here's A5, here's D4, here's G3, here's B2, and here's E1. So, there's two octaves between E6 and E1. So, once again the notes on the piano are here, here, here, here, and here. Sounds like we're ready to go. I'm Marcus Gerakos, and this has been how to tune the classical guitar to a piano.
