What key is a guitar tuned in?

Answer

A guitar is tuned in the key of C. The strings in order of thinnest to thickest are E, B, G, D, A, E. The three most commonly used chords are C, F and G.

When playing with other musicians, a different key may be necessary. To change the key without retuning the guitar, a cap is used. This is a clamp that goes over the fret and changes the key because it shortens the strings. Putting the cap on the first fret changes the key to C sharp. Going up one fret causes the key to go up one-half step on the musical scale.
