    Want another idea?

    I have an ingenious way to tune the guitar in standard or whatever tuning I want by using a simple mobile phone.

    But you gotta have a good ear.

    Here's what you do. Two methods are there

    1) Create a Ring tone based on the regular guitar tuning (Eadgbe).
    When you need to tune your guitar, take the mobile out and play the ring tone. And tune the guitar!

    2) Create one based on a song that you know. I use Sweet Child 'O Mine (G 'n R) and Ariels (System of A Down). In these songs, 'D' forms the root note. I tune the 'D' string first and the rest of the strings relative to that. Finally, confirm it by checking other 'D's on the fretboard.

    Hope this helped.
