    @chamath1985 Guitarists who only read tab don't use tuning forks. Better put, real musicians use tuning forks.

    Did you know that if you touch the fork lightly on a string at an A point (1st string 5th fret), when you start tuning that string the fork will get real loud when it's on pitch. Don't press hard like your trying to touch the fret, just ever so lightly.

    Put the heel of the fork on the bone right behind your ear.

    what I didn't understand is, the high E is 2 octaves higher than the low E …… how come can the high E assist in tuning the low E?

    secondly, the 7th fret of the A string (E) corresponds to the 12th fret E of the 6th string, still an octave higher than the open E …..

    It's quiet, but at 0:43 you can hear a car horn in the background.

    Old video but that is NOT how to use a tuning fork with a guitar.
    You use it directly on the strings above specific frets and make the fork resonate.
    Doing it against the body can get one string close but leaves you to deal with rest…
