    That looks pretty slick. I'll have to see if the local Guitar Center has on in stock. I'd like to try it and see how well it works.

    I have a couple of electronic tuners, but here's the tuner I use the most, lol...

    Seen and used it a few years ago. A dude at church had one. My Korg works a lot better, that with my Boss TU-2 takes care of any in-line stuff. $50 buys a lot of strings!!

    There are more electronic guitar gadgets out there than there are lathe turning tools. It's bewildering. Because my guitar teacher had one and it seemed to be a helpful practice tool (and was on sale), I just bought a little portable Korg Pandora PX5D Personal Multi-effects processor that does a lot of modeling, rhythm effects, has a phrase trainer mode with 80 seconds of recording capability, a tuner and lots of other stuff but not a very intuitive format. For a pocket sized device, it's kinda neat, but limited. Hopefully, it will tide me over until I can figure out what I'm doing.

    Wait. What? You buy strings? Didn't your guitar come with six of 'em already? (I used to go through 3 sets a week on my main guitar, and one set per week on the secondary one.)

    My POD pedal board has a tuner that I use on stage (and at home), but I picked up a very handy little clamp-on tuner on Black Friday from Guitar Center for $5.00. (Normally $9.95.) A lot of times I can't set up my pedal board until other PA and lighting gear and cables are put in place first, so I get my guitars uncased and onto the rack while I'm waiting. I can use the little clamp-on tuner to tune up at the same time and not have to worry about plugging into the pedal board.

    I picked up a Blue Snark from a Guitar Center sale not long ago . . . And it so much more fun saying "I gotta Blue Snark"

    Ha, I should get a blue one to go with my black one, be quite fitting considering how I abuse my strings, guitars, others ears, all while attempting to play
    Bought mine at best-buy paid a dollar three ninety eight if memory serves {$10?? something on sale}

    BTW for those unfamiliar, there is also auto tune for singers, Here ...not that I would of looked into anything like that, what with my vocal skills and all
