Tune a 6-string Guitar with a Chromatic Tuner App on Android (DaTuner Pro) [howto]
A quick tutorial on how to tune a 6-string guitar to standard tuning using a chromatic tuner app. In this case, the app used was DaTuner Pro.
After having been getting emails from people who don't really understand how a chromatic tuner works. A chromatic tuner is a generic tuner - it can tune any instrument - but this means that you need to know which notes you want to tune to before you actually sit down and start using one.
In the case of a 6-string guitar and standard tuning, the notes to tune are (from high to low) E4, B3, G3, D3, A2, E2.
Other tunings (such as Drop D, etc.) can be easily achieved by simply tuning to different notes. For instance, Drop D is E4, B3, G3, D3, A2, D2.
DaTuner is an all-purpose chromatic tuner with a simple interface. DaTuner converts the fundamental frequency to the nearest note and error in cents for quick and easy tuning of your guitar, ukelele, violin, bass, cello, mandolin, piano, harp, saxophone, balafone, Ducati timing belt, harmonica, kazoo, you name it.
