If this is not possible, then there is a simple solution to this problem: you should buy yourself a tuner. With it, you can easily adjust not only the guitar, but also any other string instruments. But first you need to know the structure of each guitar string.
How to tune a guitar to beginners
The first string is tuned to the note "mi" (on the tuner is denoted by the letter "E")
The second string is a "c" note (B)
The third string must be a note "salt" (G)
The fourth string is tuned to the pitch of the note "re" (D)
The fifth string belongs to the note "la" (A)
The sixth string is tuned to the note "mi" (E)
This is the classical system for acoustic guitars.
Note that the strings begin to count from the bottom up, the first string is the thinnest and is on the bottom, and the sixth, the thickest, is at the top.

You can adjust the guitar from the first or from the sixthstring, there is no fundamental difference. A letter is displayed on the tuner display, which shows the pitch of the note. Strings should be stretched so that the letters correspond to their ordinal number: 1-E, 2-B, 3-G, 4-D, 5-A, 6-E.

Also an easy way, if available at handpiano, synthesizer or grand piano. As already mentioned earlier, each string has its own height, therefore, we press the corresponding keys on the pianoforte and adjust it by ear. The first string - mi, the second - si, the third - salt, etc.
Adjusting the guitar with the phone beep
And what if there is not a tuner, no pianoforte,Then how to set up the guitar for beginners? In this case, too, there is a way out. The main thing is to have a musical ear. First you need to find a landmark, i.e. note, by which we will adjust. A mobile phone will help us with this. When you call from the speaker phone comes a sound, in which a certain height is a note "la", the same as a tuning fork. We memorize it by ear, then we clamp the first string on the fifth harmony and begin to pull it up or lower it to the desired height. After you have set up the first string, you need to do the following:
The second string is pressed to the fifth fret, it should sound just like the first, that is, in unison.
The third string is pressed to the fourth fret and should sound at the same height with the second.
The fourth string is pressed to the fifth fret and sounds in unison with the third.
The fifth presses to the fifth fret and sounds at the same height as the fourth.
The sixth presses to the fifth fret and sounds in unison with the fifth.
An electric guitar can have other constructions that depend on the strings and the songs being played.
