Right, I have one of those really crap Qwiktune tuners, the one's that are barely battery powered, and whenever I try and tune my guitar the needle skips all over the place.

I was wondering if there are any better ways of tuning my guitar effectively, without buying a new tuner (I'm getting one at Christmas)

Cheers.

You can do a relative tuning.
Find a guitar or something that's an e and tune to that, then tune the rest of your strings based on that one.
Find an online tuner and tune to that
Both ways can be kind of sketchy though

make sure to mute the other strings while tuning with this ****ty tuner, this might help a little - I think the needle will be more 'still'.

There are also various sites which allow you to play a certain string sound - it may be helpful, guitar pro has this feature, too.

i have a qwiktuner i like it with all the chord things and stuff but mine hasnt done taht needle thing
THOU SHALL NOT PASS!

My gear is not worth mentioning.

I have a quicktune and I find it works better if i have both pickups on my LP selected. Once i figured that out i have had no problems.

My quik tune is pretty much worthless as a tuner. When it works anything tuned with it is out of tune. A decent chromatic tuner isnt that much.
