Learn how to use a clip on tuner to tune string instruments with expert music training tips in this free online instrument instruction video clip.
I'm Reno McCormick and we're going to tell you about tuning string instruments today. Now we have something that clips right on, doesn't get interference from voices talking. I can continue to tune while I'm talking to you. So we want our G to be right at four forty, so we hit it and we tune it up. If we're sharp, it tells us. Boy, this thing's smarter than I am. So we back it down. When you do tune, always go flat and come back up to your note. Because when you play, you're going to stretch these out and if you went backwards, there's a little bit of slack and you're going to be flat all the time. So always go flat in the first place and come back up to pitch. B is perfect, look at that. Think I'd tuned it with a tuning fork or something.
