I just started playing guitar and I got I tuner to tune my guitar as I don't know how to do it by ear. I had to choose a pitch but I wasn't sure which one so I'm a bit confused. Can somebody please help.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • It would be helpful to know the specific make and model of tuner, and what you mean by "choose a pitch" (i.e. what control on the device are you talking about) for that device in order to provide a good answer. – Dave Feb 20 '17 at 18:51

    I interpret this as "how to I properly use my tuner" and not generic "how to tune" -- thus not dupe; but this really needs additional info from the OP. – Dave Feb 20 '17 at 19:16
