Online Guitar Tuner

I've been using this for a few years now. It's useful.


For Mac users: Tuner App for OSX

and after you've tuned by ear, maybe you should train it a little as well

Thanks.
Very useful.
I'm cursed with near perfect pitch, so tuning has always been a huge pain in the ass for me. Mostly in that I always hear the little subtleties of the people I'm playing with and myself mixing and it creates a weird oscillation in my head sometimes that's quite frustrating.
I've walked off stage from it before. "sorry guys, you're doing the next few without me, I need a beer"

The Mac tuner works fairly well, I've been using that for about a year now when I have no other reference material to tune from.
Good ear looks like a pretty handy resource.

And you're still in the band?? Yikes. That shit wouldn't fly with a lot of bands.

PS - Nice to see more Canuckistanians here.

I'm currently performing as a solo act, but that has nothing to do with walking off stage. There were plenty of songs that didn't need two guitars. It was pretty common for us to do that anyway. The other guy would often step down and I'd do the work.
We were a pretty relaxed group.

this was us: Transatlantic Zodiac Band

they still play around Nova Scotia
We were based in Antigonish.
I quit to chase a girl to Winnipeg... it didn't work.
We're in talks about me rejoining right now, with any luck I'll be back with them before XMAS

There's been a Canadian Maritime invasion on SS, of the late.

As for online tuners, I've always liked this: http://www.chordbook.com/
