Tune Your Guitar Using an Electronic Tuner

If you have an electronic guitar tuner you can use it to quickly tune your strings. A standard tuner will only tune to standard tuning. A chromatic tuner can tune to any note for any type of tuning. Chromatic tuners are more useful then standard tuners!

Remember the notes run in this order: A--A#--B--C--C#--D--D#--E--F--F#--G--G#--A

The Green notes are called naturals. The Black notes are called sharps (#).
