So unfortunately I'm down with covid so couldn't give time to the practice routine. But i did played my favorite song a couple of times when i had the energy. Hopefully soon I'll get back to it.

Wishing you a speedy recovery Piyush and a happy return to your guitars.

Ok i have a dumb question. My guitar was just sitting there for a week and now today when i took it to play it was out of tune. But the problem is it didn't went low but rather high. All the strings are on the higher Octave. Could it be because of weather ? It has been raining for a couple of days. Now I'm not sure whether to loose the pegs of stretch the strings a bit ?

High humidity would probably do this. In my house, it seems that if the humidity goes higher for a bit I have to loosen, and if it drops for a while, I have to tighten. Stable humidity is the hard to achieve goal.
Loosen the strings to lower than in tune then tighten back to in tune. Always try to tune “up” (tighten) into tune.

Thing is after my last strings broke I'm a little scared of loosening the strings now.

My dealer told me to loosen the strings completely every 3rd day so that the neck doesn't bend due to pressure.

And within 28 days my strings broke.


That xx--xx xx--xx.

Fluctuations in temperature & humidity will cause an instrument to go either sharp or flat or a bit of both. I tune my guitars several times each day, and sometimes they end up sharp overnight.  Sorry to hear you broke a string. That's always a bit of a shock.

The neck - with truss rod adjusted correctly - is designed exactly to withstand the pressure of the strings when tuned up. It is their job to do this. If a guitar can not withstand the pressure then it has been badly designed and manufactured.
The advice was / is duff.

I live in Scotland which has a fairly ‘neutral’ climate. Some days my guitar is sharp, some days it’s flat. Sometimes it’s a mixture of the two. I just tune up to suit. In the time I’ve owned my guitars I’ve never deliberately loosened the strings (other than to replace them of course). Touch wood I’ve never broken a string either tuning up or playing.

Maybe if you live somewhere very dry or very humid or has huge fluctuations things are different. Close2u and Twin Six know what they’re talking about. I’d listen to them.

There are two main types of key in western music ... major keys and minor keys. These are used in the vast majority of songs.

THE major key (for instance a piece described as being in A major) is one of several major types but it is the predomninant major type so is called THE major.

Similarly for THE minor key (say if a song is in B minor).

The song you reference is in the key of E minor.
The tonic / the I chord of that key is the chord E minor. The other chords used are also chords in the key. Chords all found within a key from the notes of that key are called diatonic chords.

That is what you have here.
I highly recommend this course if you feel ready for a little knowledge and understanding behind your playing: https://www.justinguitar.com/classes/practical-fast-fun-music-theory
