So i'm learning how to play yesterday by Beatles on my acoustic guitar and I have self taught myself so I have no tuning knowledge about the guitar whatsoever. So when watching this video about how to play this song I encountered one video where the guy said to tune your guitar to a f major chord on capo 5. How do i do this? I'm using a guitar tuner on my phone.
If he stated 'tune your guitar to an F major chord on fret 5', then it's not accurate. He means tune your guitar normally, then when you put a capo on fret 5 and finger a C shape, it'll produce an F chord. It's minimally easier than other ways, but still needs a Bb chord later, which requires an F shape chord there!
