Musical instruments are fickle. That’s partly what makes them sound great, but that also means they are susceptible to things like dust, weather, and humidity, all of which can throw it out of tune. If your instrument has trouble keeping its tone through the course of a single song, there may be other issues at hand.
- In guitars, your strings may need replacing.
- Ukuleles, which have softer strings than guitars, can lose their tune based on how hard you press down on them.
- In wind instruments, try to maintain your embouchure throughout your playing. Even the slightest maladjustment can make your tone woefully sharp or flat.
If you have consistent problems with keeping your instrument tuned, talk to your music teacher.
