How to tune a 12-string guitar?

The twelve-stringed guitar has 6 main strings and 6 additional strings. The strings are pulled in pairs: the main + additional, the main + optional and so on. When playing a 12 string guitar clamp at once 2 strings instead of one, the main one with an additional one. The 6 main strings are tuned in exactly the same way as when tuning a six-string guitar, 1 and 2 additional strings are same as 1 and 2 main, and 4 upper ones are an octave higher than the basic ones.

To tune the guitar through the microphone, press "Turn On" button on the tuner, and tune the guitar according to the system shown under the tuner.
