I think I’ve owned at least ten guitar tuners over the course of my lifetime. I guess technically I still own ten, because I haven’t officially gotten rid of any of them. I also couldn’t tell you where a single one is right now.
If you’re like me and can’t manage to keep track of the things, or maybe you never owned one to begin with, Alexa can work in a pinch if you need to do a quick tune of your guitar.
The skill Guitar Tuner works essentially like that tiny tuner you keep in your pocket. It will play a note that’s in tune, and then you can adjust the note on your guitar until it matches what it’s supposed to sound like.
The skill uses standard, A440 turning. Tuning starts on the low E string and then progresses through A, D, G, and B before ending on the high E string.
This is great for a quick tune-up while you’re already playing at home and want to check your tuning hands-free. However, if you’re in need of a serious turning then the notes might run through a little too fast to get it right.
For situations where you need to sit down and really work on your tuning, I recommend checking out Fender’s site or free app. It offers a number of different tunings, for not just acoustic guitars but also ukuleles and bass guitars, and can help when your tuner is MIA and you need some help getting in tune.
