Should I use an electronic tuner?

Yes.

The electronic tuner is a terrific little invention. Portable, generally reliable, fast and easy to use. While it is also important to learn to tune your guitar by ear, that is a skill that develops over time. With an electronic tuner, you can be sure you are in tune from day one.

Electronic tuners are famous for being a little bit fussy, occasionally giving inconclusive readings. Don’t take it personally. Be patient, make sure you are using it correctly, and it will ultimately give you the information you are looking for.

If you are unclear how to use the tuner properly, you might take it to your music store and have someone show you how to work it. This will vary depending on what model you own.
