Online guitar tuner

Use the online tuner to tune your guitar using your device’s microphone. Or, click the "Tuner" button above to activate the manual tuner. Click the string you want to tune and play the corresponding string on your guitar so the two notes sound together.

If your string is slightly out of tune, you will hear a pulsating sound between the two notes. As you tune the string, the pitches get closer and the pulsation slows. When the two notes match perfectly, the pulsation stops and the two notes sound, as one.
