Shortly after my birth, tiny, furry little critters crawled into my ears and pooped magical tonedeafness pebbles. They have stayed there ever since, and as an unfortunate consequence, I am completely (you guessed it) tonedeaf. I cannot hit any note, let alone tune a guitar. So that’s why the String Master gives me hope.
Tuning a guitar doesn’t get any simpler. Attach it to a peg and pluck the associated string. The String Master will actually turn it (the peg) for you until that string vibrates at the proper frequency.
So, the way I figure, I buy this $50 contraption, a guitar, some sheet music and I’m all set. I’ll be able to play some Led Zep riffs, even if to my ears it sounds like some hysterical Celine Dion wails.
