fifth fret trick

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z | A-Z | 0-9 | Symbol Dictionary

A method of relative tuning. It involves tuning the low E-string (by ear if necessary) and then using the 5th fret (A) to tune the adjacent string (the A-string). The same process is done for the rest of the strings with exception to the G-string, on which the 4th fret is held to find harmony with the b-string.
