Clip on headstock, turn on, pluck desired string and tune to what you want. You can tune a bass my bear too. If its a four string its the same notes as the top four strings on a guitar.

I have a snark sn-8 and its a great tuner.

You play the string you want to tune. The strings are the same as the four lowest strings on guitar (E A D G). The tuner will show the note you are playing and if it's too flat or too sharp or in pitch.

I would first tune one of my strings, then tune the other strings by ear and then check if all strings are in correct pitch.

So the problem you are having with your D string is that the tuner shows a wrong note or what? Do you know all note names? But yeah, you said your E string is in tune, so just tune the other strings by ear and then check with the tuner if they are in tune.
