Online Guitar Tuner

This online guitar tuner is designed to help you tune any electric guitar or acoustic guitar to standard guitar tuning (EADGBE) and features an auto advance option to keep your hand on the tuners, not on the mouse.

  1. Select which tone you would like, guitar tone or the MIDI tone.
  2. Click the knob above each string to hear the note.
  3. To have the guitar tuner automatically play each note in order, set the delay time and click the “Auto Advance” knob.
  4. Proceed with massive amounts of rocking.

Tips for tuning your guitar

  • Tune each string to the correct note, and double check your tuning with your fingers completely off the tuning peg. The slightest amount of pressure can effect the string.
  • If your open stings sound tuned but chords and higher notes sound out of tune, check your guitar’s intonation or have a professional set it for you. A good setup means each fretted note is in-tune across the neck of the guitar.
  • Remove any snags on the bridge and the nut. A tiny metal burr on the bridge can snag the string and keep it from tuning properly. If the string slot in the nut is too wide or thin, the string wont stay in tune for long.
  • Tune up to a note, not down. In my experience, starting flat and tuning up to the note will keep the string in tune much longer.
  • For tuning a 12-string guitar, each sting is paired with another string tuned to the same note. Here’s an online 12 string guitar tuner.
  • Watch your pickup height. Having your guitar pickups too close to the strings can cause them to loose sustain and in extreme cases, pull them out of tune. The magnets in the pickups aren’t strong enough to effect the strings if you follow the manufacturer’s recommended distance from the stings.
  • Common guitar tunings are (low string to high):
  • Drop D tuning
    • D-A-D-G-B-E – commonly used in modern rock. Allows you to barre with one finger!
  • Open G tuning
    • D-G-D-G-B-D – very common acoustic guitar tuning
  • Open D
    • D-A-D-F#-A-D
  • Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir tuning (otherwise known as Celtic Tuning)
    • D-A-D-G-A-D

Bass Guitar Tuner

Standard bass guitar tuning is the same as the four lowest strings on a standard guitar, E-A-D-G only two octaves lower. As a rule of thumb when playing as a band, always tune the E and A strings to pitch by ear with the guitar(s).
