Hi all. Didn't know where to post this. Hopefully I was s'posed to put it here.
Ok, I just got an electric guitar for my birthday. When I tried to tune it, both of my tuners (the one I had and the one it came with) thought the low E string was a D string. I know it couldnt be just that badly out of tune, so what could the problem be?

Crappy tuner or crappy pickups. Bad tuners wont pick up every sound that comes out of your guitar and bad pickups won't have a high enough output to produce the full tonal quality of the notes you play.

I would learn to tune by ear if you are playing alone or just jamming.

Rock on!

Well the tuner that came with its a piece of junk according to the online reviews, but the one I already had is supposed to be really good. Not sure about the pickups, tho. I'll look into it

@EMB I don't have much of an ear for tuning yet (only been playin half a year or so) but it only sounds a little out of tune, from my little experience on the subject
