  3. I have an guitar/bas tuner and I have no idea if it works for my electric guitar, I also realized that this was posted in 2009 but I'm very desperate so please help

  4. I know that people have to learn the skill of tuning by ear over time, but I guess that's why I appreciate my visual impairment, because my ear is basically working much better than that of someone with better vidion (;

  5. I play rhythm on my Fender Squire with hybrid strings and when I tune all of the strings perfectly, there are a mixture of strings that are sharp simply because I am putting pressure on them. So how would I avoid that efficiently? I tuned the strings that I will be putting pressure on slightly flat so that they are natural when I put pressure on them.

  6. very helpfull thanks

  7. I recorded a backing to do a solo on top of it, then found the solo I was playing was a fair way out compared to the backing. I'm fairly hopeless at tuning.
