    If you find it hard to get a stable renidag on the tuner (ie the note sends the LED screen flashing in all directions) it is because the tuner is picking up overtones from the other open strings. For example as you hit one string, other open strings will also sound in sympathy and the tuner doesn’t know which tone you’re after. This is even more apparent when using open tunings.Solution: Simply use either your left or right hand to damp the remaining 5 strings and the tuner will do its job without the wide fluctuations.
