Guitar tuners can be tricky for beginners to use. Because they process sound waves, you have to pick a string to bring it alive. Then you need to keep sounding the string to keep it responding....and turn the tuning head at the same time to tune the string

A guitar tuner can only handle one sound at a time. If it hears more, it doesn’t know which sound to process and gets confused. If this happens, stop for a few seconds. Let it clear itself and start again.
6th string

A useful tip before learning to use a tuner is to start picking the 6th string and rest your thumb and fin- ger on the inside tuning head. But don’t turn it. Then start picking the
5th string and move your thumb and finger out to the next tun- ing head. And go to the 4th string, moving to the outside tuning head.

When you go to the 3rd string, you have to start on the outside tun- ing head (pictured right) and work back in. Most people go inside again and break a string.....but not you.

If you do this drill three times, it gives you a good feel for using a tuner.

It’s not enough to centre a needle or get a green light. The note on your tuner must match the string you are tuning. If you’re using a tuner like the one shown here, make sure there isn’t a # symbol appearing on the top right corner of your screen

Sometimes the strings need to be tuned more than once. After tuning, it is a good idea to strum a little to settle them. Then if you need to, tune them again and you’re ready to play
