Which way do you turn a tuner?
If your guitar has tuning pegs on both sides of the headstock, each side will be different. For pegs on the left, turn the peg towards you to tune the string down, turn the peg away from you to tune the string up. For pegs on the right, vice-versa.
How do tuner apps work?
