Need more details man. Is there an auto-tuner(recognize the note you play) or a chromatic-tuner(where you can put the any specific note and tune to it) function?

it can be used for both but I usually use the chromatic setting. it has different keys it could be in but I dont know which to put it on, its a Seiko tuner incase you needed to know

Hmmm...
Do mean a single note or a scale by "key"?

If you mean a single note then, put each open string note that you want to tune and tune that specific string to that note, and so on for the other strings too.

a single note, at the top it says, key and you set which key it should be in *which I dont know* and at the bottom it has the note.

Okay, now you want to tune the guitar to Open C?
Open string notes in order are "C G C E G C" from 6-1 strings.

Put C as the key and tune your 6th(thickest string), 4th and 1st to that key.

Put G as the key and tune the 5th and 2nd string to it.

Now put E and tune the 3rd string to it.


*Make sure that you'll have to lower the tuning for 1,2,4,5,6 except for the 3rd string or you'll break your strings.
