Online guitar tuner

Click the "Tuner" button to activate the tuner. Click the first string you want to tune and play the similar string on your guitar so that the two notes sound at the same time.

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 closer and the pulsation slows down. When the two notes match perfectly, the pulsation will cease and the two notes sound as one.
