Gotcha. A snark is easier but for future reference you can tune the low E by ear using the A string.

1. Get the A string tuned right.
2. Hold down the E string at the 5th fret and pluck it. That should be an A.
3. Tune the E until that fretted note matches the A.

You can also do that in reverse and tune all the strings, itís called relative tuning the guitar. Good thing to know. If youíre playing alone it really only matters if itís in tune to itself.
