Use a Tuner To Name Notes!

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

This is a tip I got from Rick of Rick’s Guitar Shop in San Diego. First you’ll need a Snark Tuner. (They’re also great tuners!) Attach it to your headstock and play any note on the guitar. The tuner will display the name of the note since it’s a chromatic tuner! Think of the possibilities. Say you are learning the fifth position, but you have forgotten what note is on the fourth string seventh fret. Play the note and watch the readout on the Snark tuner. It will read “A” telling you the note name! What a great reference for learning to sightread. Get a Snark Tuner and try it out.
