Thread Name: guitar tuners:good for beginners?
Subject: RE: guitar tuners:good for beginners?
I'd go with the electronic tuner. Yes, serious musicians should be able to tune quickly and accurately without a tuner but beginning students may never need to acquire that skill. I don't use an electronic tuner myself but that's only because I learned to tune before they were generally available.

When our youngest daughter was learning basoon, her teacher had her use an electronic tuner while practicing as an aid to ear training and muscle control. It must have worked, she was an All-State basoonist three years running in high school and went immediately to first chair in the university symphony. (Not to brag or anything. <g>)
