Simple viola tuner to tune up your viola.
This is for the standard CGDA viola tuning.
Tuning your viola can be a difficult task for you if you are just beginning viola. The good news is, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. A nicely tuned viola can make your music sound a lot better and help you greatly while you're are just getting the hang of finger placement for notes.
Touch the note for the string you want to tune and then turn the tuning pegs on your viola and match it up with the note that is being played. Use your tuning pegs at the top of the viola to get close to the correct tone, and then use the tuning pegs on the bridge to do the fine tuning.
Also you can use this simple tuner for your cello, it is the same tuning, only the strings on the Cello are 1 octave lower.
Tip: Make several passes tuning each of the strings. For example you might have noticed that if you have tuned all the strings once, and then back to the first one you tuned, it might be off a little bit. This is because you are increasing or decreasing the tension on each of the strings as you tune it and the instrument's body might bend ever so slightly due to this difference in tension. This causes the other strings to slightly change in pitch. So make sure you keep on checking and tuning the strings until all are in tune, so make several passes.
