comment When I play the C chord, why does the electronic tuner indicate that it is a G chord?
+1 : This is a common misconception about how electronic tuners work. I develop tuner apps, and do get this question occasionally.

comment Tuning a tuning fork?
@idober : I used multiple tuner apps, including the Peterson strobe tuner, ClearTune, plus (shameless advertisement) my own inTuna and iChromatic Strobe Tuners, and on three different iOS device models (in case the audio sample rate clock was way off on one of them). They all said 8 cents sharp, +- 1 cent. (I also calibrate my own apps against WWV.)

comment Tuning a tuning fork?
The package said 440, which is what I wanted. I wonder if someone put a fork for a European tuning or something in the wrong box?
