Thread Name: guitar tuners:good for beginners?
Subject: RE: guitar tuners:good for beginners?
Just wanted to add that while guitar players can - and do - 'get away with not having a well-trained ear' (because it's a fretted instrument) they sure can't get away with it if they want to SING as they play!

Also, using an electronic tuner IS an "ear-training exercise" , as one must learn to compare and adjust the pitch of the strings to the tuner. That in itself is quite a hurdle for some beginners.
