The original "Guitar Tuner", a Java applet, became so popular that I decided to write a Mac program so folks wouldn't have to connect to the 'Net with the browser of their choice just to use the Tuner. Guitar Tuner uses a visual metaphor which mimics an handheld electronic tuner, and plays the 6 notes of the guitar at standard tuning. The notes were recorded into a PowerMac from a Martin acoustic tuned A=440 with a quartz tuner. Because the notes are guitar pitches, rather than digitally generated pitches, they may be easier to use since they share a common tonality and timbre.
Click on the radio note below the note you wish to hear. Ain't that easy?
Enjoy! It's Freeware. This may be distributed on CDROM.
