Hi, I'm Chay Alexander Wright, guitarist in Los Angeles, California, and today we're going to talk about how to tighten tuning pegs on an electric guitar. The first thing is the tuning pegs are these pieces right here located on the headstock, which is at the top of the guitar generally and we're just going to go one right down the line to the other. Start with the low E string, string six which is the first tuning peg and to tighten you turn it simply counter clockwise. To loosen it you go back down or you turn it clockwise. And we'll go all the way down the line, fifth string, A which is your second tuning peg. Third string or the next peg, third peg, fourth string, D, then the fourth peg, the third string rather, G, turning it counter clockwise to tighten it, clockwise to loosen it. Then the fifth peg, the second string, B, going to turn it counter clockwise, tighten it, loosen it, loosen it, clockwise and then the sixth tuning peg goes to the first string, high E, going to turn it counter clockwise to tighten it, loosen it, go clockwise. I'm Chay Alexander Wright, and that's how to tighten tuning pegs on an electric guitar.
