Classical Guitar Setup

To setup your classical guitar, you need to do two things - put on a set of strings, and tune each string to the correct pitch. Once you do these two things, you will be ready to start playing!

Step 1: Putting-On/Changing Strings

When you first buy a guitar, it should already have set strings on it. If the strings are clean and unbroken, you can skip this step and go straight to the tuning step.

However, if the strings are dirty or broken, you should buy a new set of strings, and put them on the guitar before you start playing. Click on the link below to learn how to change strings.

Step 2: Tuning Strings

Once your guitar is setup with a good set of strings, you need to tune each string to the correct pitch. Click on the link below to learn how.
