I used a cheap Epiphone Les Paul for my first 10 months of learning guitar, however I received a new Fender Stratocaster as a birthday gift recently.
When I tuned my first guitar, it only took one run through to tune perfectly (sometimes with very minor adjustments).
With my new Fender, I seem to have to go over each string 4 or more times to get them right. On the second and third iterations for example I'll find the strings almost a whole step off what I tuned them to on the previous iteration.
Is this normal? If so, has it got something to do with the 6-in-line headstock vs the 3+3 on my Les Paul, or the flat headstock vs the angled one? Maybe it's just the brand of guitar that contributes to this? Or maybe I'm just tuning my Fender incorrectly / inefficiently compared to my newbie tuning of the Les Paul.
