comment When tuning a guitar, how should I strike the strings?
The app is called Cleartune. For a given temperament and A-frequency, it'll show an "analog" gauge of the measured pitch. I've always gotten the instrument satisfactorily in tune with itself, but I've always noticed that the frequency starts out high and drifts down. The guitar is an acoustic, so I can't plug it in.

comment How do I choose my first guitar for self-learning?
I don't think I'd ever advocate somebody buying the best they can afford at a hobby that they're not actually sure they'll keep.

comment new strings always relaxing. how do I speed up this process?
I've heard, not that I'm an expert or anything, that it's better to just let them settle in on their own, because any kind of manual stretching will produce weak spots and irregularities in the string.

comment What exactly should I have to learn to understand why certain combination of chords are harmonic when played in a sequence?
Just a suggestion...you may want to specifically mention major and minor chords (i.e. not 7ths).
