My tuner:

Intelli Guitar Tuner-IMT101

Problem:

Im sopposed to tune it "Tune 1/2 step down to flats ".

How do i tune it to that? When i click on The flat tuning option... the screen shows 1 b and if i click it more times it goes up to 4 b.


So what do I do?

Try pressing the button once, then tuning it without pressing anything else.

Or just do it by ear.

It's not 1b,2b,3b,4b - those are the number of flats you can tune to, so the above post is correct, press once and tune to that. Then you will be flat 1 half tone .

Ok same thing. The tuner allows? you to tune upto 4 flats down from normal pitch, so b=1 semitone flat, bb = 2 semitones flat and so on.

It seems there can be difficulties with this.

There is a bit about this here;

Like about said, you could just do this by ear by tuning low E flat (Eb), via the tuner, then tune the rest by ear using the 555545 technique (stop 6th string (Eb) on 5th fret and tune 5th string to it which will then become Ab, and so on)

The guitar should be in tune when you have finished but instead of E-A-D-G-B-E tuning, on 6-5-4-3-2-1 strings, it wil be Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb, where b = flat
