Subject: RE: guitar tuners:good for beginners?
Go with the electonic tuner. They are less than $20 US (if you are not in the USA then sorry). Also, recently there was released a cheap electronic tuner / metronome combination for not that much money.

I would say that the metronome is a must have to learn any instrument.

On the topic of ear training, there are some good pieces of shareware that you can download to help that. In my opinion, aye, teach people to train their ears and tune by ear, but start with an instrument that is in tune!
