Step 2 – Clip the Tuner to Your Bass
Clip the tuner onto your bass, attaching it where the tuning pegs are. You just clip it on and you can start tuning.
Step 3 – Strike One of the Strings
Next play one of the strings, without fretting any notes. Remember low frequencies travel slowly so let it ring and give the tuner chance to pick up the sound.
Step 4 – Adjust the Tuning Pegs
Note: Over tightening a string will break it, so do this slowly. By turning the string tighter the needle on the tuner will go to the right. Turning losing the string the needle will go to the left. You want the arrow on your tuner to be in the center, with the correct note showing for each string.
Step 5 – Repeat Tuning Your Bass On All 4 Strings
So repeat this on all of the strings on your bass. The thickest string is an E, then an A, then a D and finally the thinest string is a G. So let each of the notes ring and make sure all 4 of the strings of your bass guitar are in tune.
