The HotFrets Guitar Tuner

The guitar tuner below is an old-fashioned, use-your-ear, tuner. It's good to have a clip-on or some other electronic device but, nothing takes the place of being able to tighten or losen a string so that it matches the pitch of another note.

Go ahead, grab your guitar and click directly on one of the strings below to get a tuning note. You can also use the number keys on your computer keyboard (1 through 6) to sound the various strings.
