Every musician knows the usefulness of having a good tuning tool for their instruments. The guitar is no different.

For those who still can't tune "by ear" or who simply prefer to rely on the accuracy of a tuner, we've listed 6 ideal applications for this moment.

1. Cifra Club Tuner

This app is perfect for tuning guitar, guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo, ukulele, violin, viola, cello and any string instrument. To this end, it offers Chromatic Tuner and String-by-String Tuner.



With the chromatic, the user can tune the instrument by tightening and loosening the strings until the pointer is centered in green, at which time the desired tone will be reached. As long as you press on, the pointer will stay in orange. The red area indicates that it needs to be loosened.

For those who prefer, the string-by-string tuner brings texts indicating what the user needs to do, with a more complete guidance.

3. Tuner and Metronome

Easy to use, this app proposes that, with just one touch, the user can start/stop the metronome, configure sound/blinking flash/vibration/visual beats combinations, activate the tuner, select a rhythm pattern and record the music that you are playing.

In addition, the application features a tuner with two modes: chromatic tuner, which measures sound frequency and intensity, and tuning fork mode. The flashing flash metronome feature, on the other hand, is ideal for times when external noise prevents you from hearing the instrument and application. Just follow the rhythm of the flash's blink.

The app is compatible with guitar, piano, ukulele, mandolin, violin, cello, viola, bass, drums, flute and harmonica; and also with transposed instruments, such as clarinet in B-flat, horn in F, saxophone in E-flat, piccolo in D-flat and among others.
