The tuning of the six string guitar.

The normal tuning of the 6-string guitar is E A D G B E (from the bass strings to the higher strings, 6 -> 1)

 String Guitar.

A 12-string guitar, has this tuning: e E - A a - d D - G g - BB - E E. in this the lowercase letters are tuned an octave higher. So the low E, A, D and G string have an octave higher tuned string extra, the high B and E are simply double (same string, same tuning). Because of the high tension on the neck the twelve-string guitar is sometimes tuned down by a half note or even more.

Bass tuning.

The tuning; E A D G from low to high. A five-string bass has an extra string; low B. the six-string has an extra C string (high).
