    I have a question on tuning my violin. I am new (three weeks playing) and have watched the tuning video.
    What app would you recommend to help tune your violin?
    When I’m tuning one of my strings, I turn the screw all the way and it’s still not at the right note. The screw is about to come off. Should I adjust with the other end instead? Sorry if I don’t use the correct terms.. I am enjoying this new adventure! I recently inhereted a violin and I have always wanted to learn to play. Thanks for your help!

    Hey Lnphappy, I recommend the tuning app “INSTunerLite.” I like this app as it turns different colors as when you are on different pitches. Green indicates “in tune,” and red indicates “out of tune.” This app is great but I believe only available on Apple devices. Regarding other apps, I’ve really have never seen one I’ve been disappointed with. Download one that is most popular with the best ratings.

    Regarding your question about the screw (fine tuners). These can only be twisted so far (in either direction), so once you reach the top or the bottom, you should adjust the fine tuner back to “normal” position, and then compensate (tune) with the peg. When I say “normal” position with the fine tuner, this means a spot where you have room to twist in either direction without running out of space.

    Great questions! For those of you that need help with tuning, check out my tuning video.

    I like the tuning app Cleartune. I think its only available from the apple app store. It’s the only tuner that has worked very well for me.
