Im moving house on Thursday and going to be without internet for three weeks before it gets sorted. Decided to take that time to make some progress on learning the guitar. Unfortunately the guitar I have is kinda crappy and goes out of tune every couple of days, so I use this page and the little flash application to tune it back.

Is there a way to save the flash file to use offline? Tried to save it via firefox but only the background is saved. Alternatively does anyone have any basic programs to reccomend that do the same thing?

    Saved the same file before, tried it on a few different programs and it always does the same, shows the background and the acoustic/electric options but no buttons for the actual notes.

    This page has a downloadable tuner if you're not set on using your original one.

    1. Clear your firefox cache, then visit that site.
    2. Do a file search of your firefox cache directory for "*.swf"
    3. Figure out which of the results is the tuning tool
    4. Copy the tuning tool swf file to your desktop or where ever you'd like to store it.

    One of the swf files in your cache should be the cached copy of the tuning tool from the site, you should be able to open it in a firefox window from the local directory.

    Why not just buy a $20-30 electronic tuner? You will never regret the purchase if you enjoy playing guitar and have trouble tuning. Mine was dirt cheap and all I have to do is pluck a string, it measures the pitch (D, G, E, etc) and displays it with how close it is.

    even cheaper would be a simple pitch pipe. this would also help train your ear to detecting pitch so you can eventually tune au naturale.

    have to say, a good stomp tuner is an investment you will never regret. i have a whole mess of pedals, and the ones that i cannot live without have nothing to do with sound: tuner and volume pedal.
