Online Guitar Tuner

Buegrass music uses standard guitar tuning. From the lowest string to the highest string the notes are EADGBE. Occasionally drop D may be used, but for the most part guitarists in a Bluegrass band keep it simple.

How it works?
1. Select your instrument and press 'Start Tuning' button.
2. When prompted, allow your browser to use the microphone.
3. Pluck the string you want to tune and the tuner will highlight the note letter for you and show you if you are sharp or flat.
4. When the note turns orange, it means it is close to being in tune.
5. When the note turns green, that string is in tune.
