As someone else stated, grinding off material from the end of the tines will increase the pitch. However, grinding material off at the base bend of the fork will lower the pitch: there the material contributes much more to the fork's stiffness than to its inertia. But it may well affect the purity of tone.
as an addition to previous answers, it also makes certain riffs possible at higher speeds that would be extremely difficult without it. A great example of this is BYOB by System of a down, and Beast and the Harlot, by Avenged Sevenfold It's a trick as old as the hills. There are examples of it at least as early as Led Zeppelin in rock music. Like other ...

E2 is the bottom (fattest) string, followed by A2, D3, G3, B3 and the thin E is E4. However, on a guitar tuner, there usually is a 'guitar setting' which recognises the actual open string notes. The thing to be very careful of, as a beginner, is that an E note in one octave can sound like a different E. Indeed, to a tuner, play an E and it'll ...
Remove the battery. I think it is set to some other base pitch for a transposing instrument, like an E-flat clarinet, so while it is probably calibrated correctly, it is not displaying the same note names as on the piano. I don't think A=440 or A=450 or some other tuning is the issue. You want to get it back into "guitar" mode. Usually the easiest way to ...
